Purpose

Senator Michael Gianaris, Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer will hold a press conference with community leaders at base of the Queensborough Plaza to demand that the New York City Department of Transportation (NYDOT) investigate the layout and design of the street grid around Queen Plaza. In the past 10 days two major accidents with one resulting in a fatality have occurred in this area. These officials and community leaders will also demand the NYCDOT strengthen traffic safety on the bridge and at the ramp to avoid any future accidents and tragedies.
