New Traffic Light Installed
The community has long fought for the traffic light due to the high volume of traffic and increased number of accidents at this location. "I am pleased that New York City Department of Transportation finally heard our community's outrage and we now have a traffic light that will help motorists, pedestrians and all who travel in this area," stated Assemblywoman Pheffer. "Many members of our community attended rallies, wrote letters and voiced the need for this traffic light. We look forward to a safer roadway for the school children in the area," stated Gaska.
"We have requested that the light also include a left turn arrow allowing for safe passage onto Beach 84 Street, and are awaiting the Department of Transportation's evaluation and response," added Pheffer.
