Work to unclog traffic and improve safety on the long stretch of 4th Ave. that runs through Sunset Park will start Aug. 13 and go for about two months, said Department of Transportation Project Manager Jesse Mintz-Roth at a meeting of Community Board 7’s 4th Ave Working Group last night. Plans include moving school drop-off locations off the avenue, adding or enlarging 15 loading zones for trucks to reduce double parking, and widening the meridien to create a plaza with planters and benches — most likely near 59th St.
