The Department of Transportation unveiled a new traffic signal and crosswalks on Roosevelt Ave. Friday as part of the Vision Zero campaign to increase street safety.
Following a safety study of the area, the DOT installed a new traffic light and two signalized crosswalks at 90th Street and Roosevelt Avenue in an effort to increase safety in the area.
The area is a busy transit hub under an elevated 7 train station, and was designated a “priority location” under the Vision Zero plan. The intersection saw two severe pedestrian injuries between 2010 and 2014, and the stretch of Roosevelt Avenue between Case Street and Elmhurst Avenue saw two pedestrian fatalities in 2013.
