Queens residents had a chance to voice their opinions to the Department of Transportation at a meeting Monday night about pedestrian and bicyclist safety on Northern Boulevard.
Some changes were made to the road after a child was hit and killed back in 2014. But some say those changes created more traffic tie-ups and didn't make the area safer.
"I would like all the street light systems to have a cycle. Meaning that the red lights would be for the drivers, but then the walking signal would be for the pedestrians," said one resident.
"I'd love to see bike lanes but that's not a unanimously held position at this table," stated another resident.
"Since 2014 we've added over a dozen concrete islands to shorten crossing distances for seniors and school children, we've added other traffic calming elements," said Nicole Garcia of the city DOT.
According to the DOT, six people were killed on Northern Boulevard in 2017 and four were killed so far this year.
