Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety at Ocean Parkway Intersections
Monday, June 23rd, 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday will be the one-year anniversary of the death of pedestrian Ngozi Agbim at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Church Avenue. Dialog, proposals, and actions to make walking and bike-riding safer on Ocean Parkway continue as the long-standing dangers of venturing onto Ocean Parkway remain very much on area residents' minds.
At a public meeting tomorrow night, Assemblymember Jim Brennan and representatives from the New York State Department of Transportation will present a plan that's intended to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety at Ocean Parkway intersections from Avenue C to Avenue I.
Methods that would be used to help reduce accidents include installing pedestrian refuge islands, upgrading signage, adjusting signal timing, and more.
Neighbors, you're needed at this meeting to evaluate the merits of the plan, comment on it, and suggest alternatives.
