Some drivers still going the wrong way in Hunts Point
Several months after two street conversions in Hunts Point, drivers are still going the wrong way.
In August, East Bay and Oak Point avenues were changed from two-way to one-way streets. Signs were put up about the changes but some Bronx drivers say they do not help. Residents add drivers who go the wrong way create very dangerous situations.
The Bronx transportation commissioner says the conversion eases traffic congestion and reduces pollution. The city?s Economic Development Corporation says the street conversions will eventually help revitalize Hunts Point. The changes allow two-lane traffic and angled parking along both streets.
