DOT to Hold Woodhaven Boulevard Forum Tonight

woodhavengrab.jpg

Here's another opportunity for livable streets advocates to make themselves heard tonight: DOT will be hosting a public input session regarding congestion on Woodhaven Boulevard in Queens, focusing on the area between Queens Boulevard and Liberty Avenue.

Subjects to be discussed include: Traffic Volume, Roadway Alignment, Mass Transit, Physical Constraints and the Service Road.

There have been over half a dozen pedestrian fatalities
and scores of ped- and bike-involved crashes on and along
Woodhaven since 1995, according to Transportation Alternatives' CrashStat. So presumably safety will be part of the discussion as well.

    • Time: 5:30 p.m.
    • Location: Forest Hills Community Library, 108-19 71st Avenue (between Queens Boulevard and 110th Street)
    • More info: Andrew Lenton, NYC DOT: 212-676-7985
