Amid community opposition, CB 9 tables vote on Hillside-Metropolitan proposal
Citing the high number of accidents at the corner of Metropolitan and Hillside avenues, the city Department of Transportation wants to make a number of changes to both streets, but the plan ran into resistance when presented to Community Board 9 Tuesday. A top concern is the danger posed to pedestrians by westbound vehicles making turns, as above.
Richard Carmona goes over the DOT’s plans for the intersection of Hillside and Metropolitan aves. at Community Board 9 Tuesday night.
