A One-Way Street for Waverly Avenue?


At last week’s Community Board Two meeting, the Transportation Committee chairman told the board about a petition going around to convert Waverly Avenue to a one-way street. Currently Waverly is a south-bound one-way street until it hits Fulton, and then becomes a two-way street to Atlantic Avenue. A parent with the First Endeavor Charter School (which is on the block, between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue) is spearheading the petition. She thinks the conversion would benefit the narrow street, which is not only home to the school but other commercial businesses. Community Board Two recommended that the DOT conduct a feasibility study. The school is in touch with DOT so if they decide the street change makes sense, they will come back to the transportation committee to present their proposal.
