An all-way stop is coming to the intersection of 29th Avenue and 146th Street in Flushing.
According to State Senator Tony Avella, that will mean safer crossings for pedestrians and motorists alike.
“I am glad to report that, after asking multiple times, 29th Avenue is getting the additional traffic control that residents have been asking for,” Avella said.
Avella said he first contacted the Department of Transportation (DOT) in November 2014, and asked again in May 2015. Last week, Avella said DOT approved the all-way stop.
It will be installed by the end of March.
“The installation of additional traffic controls goes a long way in improving the safety of our streets,” Avella said. “I am glad I was able to help the residents of 29th Avenue secure this extra safety measure.”
