The Van Duzer Street and St. Paul’s Avenue corridor has become a popular bypass for speeding drivers trying to avoid major Staten Island thoroughfares. These roads are heavily residential and speeding poses a real threat to members of the community. There are several schools and places of worship in this corridor that are also in danger.
The TransAlt Staten Island Committee calls for the installation of traffic calming measures and improved pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure:
- Highly-visible crosswalks at major pedestrian crossings
- Smart street design to curtail dangerous speeding
- Improvements to sidewalks
- Bicycle lanes (protected where possible)
Let's make Van Duzer Street safer for everyone!
UPDATE: In Febrauary 2017, Staten Island Community Board 1 voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Van Duzer Street Corridor plan, and DOT should break ground on the project this spring. You can view the plan HERE.
