CB6: Speed Bumps to be Installed in Forest Hills & Rego Park
Community Board 6 voted Thursday to give the Department of Transportation the “green light” to install several speed bumps on Austin Street between Ascan Avenue and Union Turnpike.
The speed bumps were recommended by Council Member Karen Koslowitz, and have since been approved by the DOT.
Locals will soon see the bumps on Austin Street between Ascan Avenue and 73rd Road; 73rdRoad and 75th Avenue; 75th Road and 76th Avenue; and 77th Avenue and 77th Road. Community Board 6 also voted to approve a speed bump on Booth Street between 65th Road and 66th Avenue. The last speed bump will be going up on Kessel Street on 74th Avenue.
