Queens Boulevard Part Deux
After a decade-long campaign by TransAlt activists in Queens, the Department of Transportation laid down Phase One of a major redesign of Queens Boulevard in the fall, including a protected green bike lane that’s been packed since the paint dried. Now, local activists are paying close attention to the conversation about the next leg, where the redesign extends into Elmhurst. The DOT’s plans for Phase Two are expected to be approved by Community Board 4, and the ribbon cut on those improved travel conditions this summer.
