BX residents want brakes put on speeders during Grand Concourse construction
Construction along the Grand Concourse has pedestrians and drivers calling for changes to prevent accidents.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) has closed a stretch of the roadway and is diverting traffic to E. 166th Street and Walton Avenue. Concerned Bronx residents say that area has turned into a speedway. They want the DOT to install a speed bump, a stop sign and have a worker direct traffic.
The DOT says the traffic pattern is temporary due to road improvements and is expected to last until October.
