Borough President Helen Marshall honored DOT Queens Commissioner Maura McCarthy, who retired last week.

The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Queens commissioner has retired. Maura McCarthy has stepped down from her post after six years of service on Friday, January 11.

The lifelong Queens resident oversaw transportation services in the borough, serving as the community liaison for the agency and working with police to identify accident-prone locations, especially those near schools, according to the city DOT’s website.

McCarthy was employed by several city agencies since 1979, beginning as a 9-1-1 operator for the NYPD.

Borough President Helen Marshall honored McCarthy with a citation one day before her retirement, thanking her for her “invaluable” service and “legacy of care.”

The DOT did not immediately comment.
