UPDATE: Councilmember Lander's website reports that
"Construction at Church Ave. & McDonald Ave. will begin Summer 2017 and is estimated to be complete prior to the beginning of the school year in the fall.

After completing a feasibility study at Church & Coney Avenue, DOT informed our office that curb extensions are not feasible at this location due to a freight route. They can implement a hardened center line, which will be completed by the end of July.

In addition, DOT is now completing a feasibility study for a leading pedestrian interval (LPI) intersection (that shows a walk sign for pedestrian before showing a green light to car traffic).

DOT is also undertaking a feasibility study for curb extensions at Caton Ave. & Coney Island Avenue."

Reconstruction of the intersection of Church and McDonald avenues is underway. The goal of the transformation is to make the crossroads safer for pedestrians, drivers, and bicyclists.

Funding for the work was approved by residents of City Council District in 2013 through City Councilmember Brad Lander's Participatory Budgeting project.

An article in Windsor Terrace Patch says that
"The improvements at the site will include curb extensions, pedestrian ramps and catch basins, replacement of the water main and a complete pavement restoration."
