Two more public workshops on the proposed QueensWay plan will be held this month.

The two events, hosted by Friends of the QueensWay and The Trust for Public Land, will provide some insight on proposed ideas for the High Line-like park along the right of way for the former Rockaway Beach Branch of the LIRR.

The first workshop will be held on Monday, March 24 at 7 p.m. at the Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School at 91-30 Metropolitan Ave. in Forest Hills.

The second workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 26 at 7 p.m. at the High School for Construction Trades, Architecture and Engineering in Ozone Park. Both schools are within a block of the proposed QueensWay, which would run from Ozone Park to Rego Park.

The workshops are in addition to three others that were held in Woodhaven, Forest Hills and Ozone Park in November. They are part of the feasibility study for the proposed park led by The Trust for Public Land.

Gov. Cuomo allocated $467,000 toward the study last winter.
