City transit gurus unveil plans to fix deadly McGuinness Boulevard


The city’s Department of Transportation last week unveiled their preliminary designs for the start of the redesign of McGuinness Boulevard to mixed reviews as the community and city officials campaign to make the dangerous roadway safer.

At a meeting of Community Board 1’s Transportation Committee on June 30, DOT presented their draft proposal for the “in-house” redesign of McGuinness — not the full $39 million redesign funded by then-Mayor Bill de Blasio last year after elementary school teacher Matthew Jensen was killed in a hit-and-run while crossing the street.
