jackson heights DOT neighborhood transportation study
Building on previous work performed by the NYCDOT and the community, this study is envisioned as Phase 1 of a two phase study to comprehensively address transportation issues in Jackson Heights. Phase 1 will focus on short-term improvements, e.g. changes to curbside regulations, traffic signals and temporary markings, while Phase 2 will focus on longer-term improvements which would require intensive analysis, capital commitment or major coordination with agencies other than NYCDOT.
