Brooklyn- State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C, 22nd District) today is announcing that the New York City Department of Transportation has approved his request to install a traffic light at a busy intersection at the corner of the block of Fontbonne Hall Academy.
The Department of Transportation has approved a traffic signal to be installed at the intersection of 99th Street and Shore Road by March 31, 2011.
Senator Marty Golden stated, “This corner has long been one where a traffic light has been requested by the parents, administration and students of Fontbonne Hall Academy.
For the vehicular and pedestrian safety at these intersections, I am pleased to have worked with the Department of Transportation to have these safety measures installed. Each time a dangerous and busy intersection is approved for a traffic light, we eliminate danger and have the opportunity to see safer streets.”
