A College Point street corner will soon be brightened up.

Over the summer, state Senator Tony Avella received an anonymous letter describing dangerous nighttime conditions at the corner of 11th Avenue and College Place. A lack of street lighting at the location caused hazardous visibility problems, according to the individual.


In response, Avella requested that the Department of Transportation (DOT) look into installing street lights at the corner. A subsequent DOT investigation deemed that there was a need for additional lighting at the location.

“I was pleased to hear from DOT that my constituents’ safety concerns will be addressed,” Avella said. “This is an excellent example of the good that can come out of city agencies and the community working together.”
