DOT rejects Holden’s requests to add traffic control measures in Maspeth, Glendale


A series of proposals made by Councilman Robert Holden to add traffic control at several intersections in his district has been turned down by the city’s Department of Transportation (DOT).

Holden had requested that a traffic light be installed at 69th Street and 60th Avenue in Maspeth, arguing that adding signage in the area would slow down traffic, make it easier for pedestrians to cross the street and reduce the number of collisions along this stretch of road.
