Campaign HistoryQueens Boulevard is a major route through Queens: hundreds of thousands of people travel along and across it every day. Infamously nicknamed the “Boulevard of Death,” Queens Boulevard is simply not safe. Since 2013, eight people have been killed on Queens Boulevard due to the dangerous road conditions, and more than 218 pedestrians and cyclists were injured.
T.A.’s Queens Activist Committee is calling for a Complete Street on Queens Boulevard, one with pedestrian safety improvements, protected bike lanes and Select Bus Service (SBS). These critical improvements will save lives, boost foot traffic to local business and will dramatically improve local quality of life along the boulevard.
