Safety improvements are coming to 54th Avenue in Maspeth.

Before the city Department of Transportation (DOT) rolls out the new Select Bus Service route along Woodhaven Boulevard, the agency will be in Maspeth making safety improvements near I.S. 73.

On or about Saturday, Nov. 11, the DOT will begin a four-part pedestrian safety improvement project aimed at improving access to I.S. 73, simplifying traffic patterns, shortening pedestrian crossings, and improving visibility along 54th Avenue between 69th and 71st streets, as they convert that portion of 54th Avenue to a one-way eastbound corridor.

The other features of this project include installing a painted curb extension at 69th Place and 69th Lane; reconfiguring crosswalks at 69th Place and 69th Lane to align with 54th Avenue; and banning U-Turns from 69th Lane to 69th Place.
