Two streets near PS 163 in Kew Gardens Hills have been converted into one-ways, making them safer for all users.
The city has turned 159th and 160th streets, previously two-way streets, into one-ways earlier this week.
Officials say this will make pedestrian crossings safer and easier to predict for schoolchildren and cars.
“This is a long time coming and will help ease the dangerous traffic conditions that our community contends with on a daily basis,” says principal Francine Marsaggi. “I believe that these changes will allow for smoother and safer transitions during our morning ingress and our afternoon dismissal.”
