This Week: Tell DOT to Prioritize a Safer Times Plaza in 2017

DOT took steps this year to recognize the need for improvements at Times Plaza — the triangle at the deadly intersection of Flatbush, Atlantic, and Fourth avenues in Downtown Brooklyn — but has yet to see the project through.

On Saturday Transportation Alternatives will hold a rally, with Borough President Eric Adams, to urge the city to fix Times Plaza in 2017.
