Bronx, NY: Morris Park Community Association plans town hall on November 28th to discuss DOT plan to do reduce travel lanes on Morris Park Avenue

The Morris Park Community Association will host a town hall about a contentious traffic plan.

The MPCA will sponsor the open forum to hear the community’s reaction to a ‘road diet’ proposal for Morris Park Avenue put forth by the NYC Department of Transportation at a town hall-style meeting that will gather on Wednesday, November 28.

The meeting will be held at P.S. 83 at 7 p.m., said Frank Agovino, MPCA vice president.

The plan, part of a citywide initiative to improve pedestrian safety called Vision Zero, would see Morris Park Avenue’s current two lane roadways (including travel lanes and combined travel/parking lanes) in both directions reduced to a single travel lane in either direction between Bronxdale and Newport avenues.
