After touring M.S. 172 in May, Senator Tony Avella learned of dangerous traffic conditions in front of the school on 257th Street. The senator then urged the Department of Transportation (DOT) to get involved. The DOT conducted a traffic analysis of the area over the summer and recently announced plans to install “All-Way Stop” controls at the intersection of 257th Street and 81st Avenue. The DOT also said they will advise the commanding officer of the 105th Precinct to monitor for vehicles that double park at the intersection of 257th Street and 82nd Avenues.

“I am extremely pleased that DOT has taken the right steps to ensure the safety of the students at M.S. 175,” stated Avella. “257th Street becomes a safety nightmare during drop off and dismissal times. With so many cars double parked it’s hard for students and motorists to get a clear view of the roadway. The new sign will reduce the ability of additional traffic to enter the scene with a full head of steam.”
