Last night, Community Board 7 was presented with a revision to a proposal that once wanted to install bus-only lanes along Main Street. This plan raised many concerns for locals regarding heavy traffic congestion.
The new proposal would install Select Bus Service bus lanes on Main Street in both directions from Kissena Blvd to the LIE and a bus lane only on the Northbound side of Main Street from Reeves Avenue to the LIE. The bus lanes will be one lane away from the curb so as to continue to allow parking and loading.
“Addressing the needs of commuters, drivers and pedestrians in an area so heavily congested is extremely difficult, but I believe this plan is the best solution for the Flushing community,” said Senator Stavisky.
