Since Halloween, 12 pedestrians have been killed in traffic accidents, many of them caught on video.
As part of the larger Vision Zero program to end road fatalities, various city agencies have organized an Atlantic Avenue Safety Improvement Workshop from 5:30-8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 17 at Cypress Hills Community School on 265 Warwick Street. According to the announcement, light refreshments will be served.
The workshop will focus on identifying street safety concerns, discussing street design solutions, gathering community input, and brainstorming ways to improve safety on Atlantic Avenue.
Representatives from the Department of Transportation, the Department of Design & Construction, and other city agencies will take note of public input for safety improvements on future designs for the strip of Atlantic Avenue between Georgia Avenue and Rockaway Boulevard in East New York and Ozone Park.
For those unable to attend, input can be shared here.
