LIC Residents Rally for Safety Measures at 49th Avenue Intersection

    by

    This morning, Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer joined Long Island City residents to call on the Department of Transportation to install crosswalks and additional signage on 49th Avenue. The Council Member, in particular, is looking at the intersection of 11th Street and 49th Avenue (adjacent to the off ramp of the Pulaski Bridge) where two large housing complexes are located. Residents have found that the intersection is the site of an increasing number of vehicular collisions. The DOT hasn’t yet implemented any safety improvements for the area. Council Member Van Bramer tweeted the above photo of this morning’s rally, saying “It’s unacceptable to wait for a tragedy to occur. Residents who live on 49th Ave in #LIC deserve safety improvements.”
