Crossing at Gerritsen and Seba Avenues is expected to be safer beginning today.
The new traffic signal at the intersection is operating as of today and although it might depend on who you ask, the parents I ran into are happy with the signal. They were tired of having to “run for their lives”.
The whole process took only about six months from start to finish.
There may be some unforeseen issues with this signal also, who knows. What do you think about the light?
Several changes have happened to Gerritsen Avenue over the past few years:
- Reduced from four lanes to two.
- A 25 mph speed limit, reduced from 30.
- Advanced warning signals at PS 277
- A 20 mph school zone
- Northbound Gerritsen Avenue now features left-turn lanes onto every intersection.
