Changes are coming to major corridors in NYC.
The New York City Department of Transportation has announced plans for a redesign of Queens Boulevard. It will include better lane markings, crosswalks and a bike lane.
The city has already lowered the speed limit form 30 mph to 25 mph and redesigned some problem intersections

Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer represents the area along the boulevard that runs through Sunnyside and Woodside. He says this is a way to change the perception that it is the "boulevard of death."

NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg says the De Blasio administration is also looking at modifications to Grand Concourse in the Bronx and other major corridors in the 5 boroughs.
