Following Series Of Crashes, Traffic Light Coming To Newkirk Avenue & Westminster Road
traffic light coming to Newkirk Avenue and Westminster

After numerous neighbors have voiced concerns about safety at Newkirk Avenue and Westminster Road (where a recent accident resulted in a parked car and a home’s wall being smashed), we’ve learned a new traffic signal is coming to the problematic intersection that’s right by PS 217 and Milk and Honey.

Thanks to neighbor Michael Dietsch for originally alerting us to the light being installed, and when we reached out to the DOT yesterday, they told us that the signal is expected to be installed by the end of this month. A DOT representative stressed that the signal will improve traffic conditions and safety at the intersection where there were six reported crashes within a 12-month period.

What do you think? What kind of a difference will that light make at the intersection?
