Difficult Turn/Crossing
10/19/2017 - 12:00
Map Comment
Bike Lanes are a horrible idea. They take away parking from both residents and business owners/patrons who desperately need it. Parking costs alot of money and people rely on their cars. Bike Lanes cause traffic jams and only help the very very very few who utilize them. Community Values = NO Bike Lanes!

Bike Lanes are a horrible idea promoted primarily by people who don't live in the community. They eliminate valuable parking and cause traffic jams. They do not represent our values.

There should be an elevator to the 71Av subway station here on the north side of Queens Boulevard so disabled people on that side of the boulevard don't have to cross the dangerous boulevard to get to the elevator on the south side. Also, it would be a much-needed backup when the other elevator is out of service.

There are many obstacles such as phone booths, and poles that make it hard to exit/board the bus. They should be moved or, even better, the sidewalk should be widened with benches and bus shelters. This is one of the most frequently used bus to subway transfers in Queens.

Perfect location for DOT to do a similar treatment as done in 63rd Dr in Rego Park. Bulb out the medians to half-way Ascan Av and make the crosswalks larger; give pedestrians a signalized head-start. This is a location where many strollers, children and elderly cross.

The light to make the right onto 108th St changes too quickly, and the turn bay is too short, leading to congestion and some running the signal. DOT should consider a longer green signal or maybe a flashing yellow to keep traffic moving. Already exists at Thompson & Van Dam in Long Is. City.

Pedestrians are not allowed to cross here, requiring people to either use the subway underpass or go all the way to the other side of 78th Avenue or Union Turnpike just to go across, to the Crossroads Building, the Q37 or business such as Starbucks. People who use wheelchairs can't use the subway underpasses and have to use the long detour. Because it takes so long, people take their chances going over the fences.

Crosswalks should be installed connecting the medians, which should be widened with tree-plantings and maybe some benches. Without trees the boulevard becomes a wind tunnel during stormy weather. Trees would help deal with that, would reduce temperatures, absorb carbon emissions and would make the area more pleasant.

Separate the service road from the main road here so that cyclists turning from Kew Gardens Road can position themselves at a safe place here.
