College Point intersection to get four-way stop sign

By Cynthia Koons

“It is good news for College Point residents that DOT has at long last responded to the safety concerns at this location,” Avella said. “When I first became involved in the College Point community over 20 years ago, this was one of the first civic issues I worked on.”

The DOT examined the intersection at Avella's request, he said.

Local resident Greta Hruska said she is grateful for the new traffic signs.

“It will make it a lot safer for pedestrians crossing the street,” she said in a statement.

A 26-year resident of the area, Carolyn Haseney, said the intersection has been a problem for many years.

“This location has been a safety hazard for two decades,” Avella said. “It is about time that something has finally been done.”
