Addabbo Addresses Cross Bay Construction
In answer to Councilman Joseph Addabbo’s recent request to Department of Transportation Commissioner Iris Weinshall to solve the traffic congestion problem on Cross Bay Boulevard during the reconstruction of the Cross Bay Boulevard Bridge over North Conduit Avenue and South Conduit Avenue in Howard Beach, Traffic Enforcement Officers have been assigned to the boulevard during rush hours.
Addabbo thanked Commissioner Weinshall for her help on behalf of his many concerned constituents who had contacted him regarding the traffic build-ups along the entire boulevard.
"Hopefully now, with the assignment of these Traffic Enforcement Agents to the boulevard, vehicular traffic will be moving along at a better flowing pace," said Addabbo.
The councilman said he had also contacted Verizon regarding the timing of the lights along Crossbay Boulevard. They have advised him they are currently working on the lights and that the traffic signals should be better timed by this coming August.
According to the City Department of Transportation the anticipated date for the completion of the reconstruction of the Cross Bay Boulevard Bridge is July 15, 2004.
