Finally, Queens Boulevard is Being Made Safer
There is good news for Queens residents and those visiting and working in the borough. According to New York 1, as part of Mayor De Blasio’s traffic safety plan, Vision Zero, the city will allocate $100 million to make major safety improvements on Queens Boulevard.
New York 1 reported that, “The improved boulevard will have safer pedestrian areas, more crosswalks, and protected bike lanes. Roosevelt Avenue to 73rd Street will be the first of three segments to undergo construction, with the entire project stretching through 2016.” Considering that 185 people, mostly pedestrians, have died on Queens Boulevard since 1990, in traffic accidents, this major safety initiative should save the lives of pedestrians on Queens Boulevard moving forward.
While traffic safety may not be a media headline-grabber, it is a vitally important issue for those of us who cross the streets in the five boroughs daily. This is important news for all of us.
