August 10, 2017

Assemblymember Pamela Harris (D-Brooklyn) announced that she successfully pushed for the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) to install a traffic light at the intersection of Colonial Road and 91st Street in Bay Ridge. The project is set to be completed by the end of this upcoming November.

“The intersection of Colonial Road and 91st Street is a busy one, with lots of homes close by and a bike path that runs through it,” noted Harris. “Many Bay Ridge residents expressed concerns and I’m proud to report that their concerns were heard and action is being taken.”

Assemblymember Harris had written a letter requesting that the NYCDOT install a traffic light at the intersection, citing the concerns of residents. After conducting a traffic study on the need for additional measures, the NYCDOT granted the request and is set to begin work soon.

“This has been an ongoing issue for the people in this neighborhood and I’m glad that together, we’ve worked to make our streets safer,” added Harris.
