Two south Bronx streets being overhauled as part of redevelopment effort

Two streets in the south Bronx are about to undergo a major overhaul as part of an effort to redevelop the area.

Oak Point and East Bay avenues are both being redesigned to change the traffic flow. Oak Point, which has been two directions for years, will now become one-way eastbound. And just one block south on East Bay, traffic will flow westbound. Both streets will have two lanes of traffic and angled parking on the side.

The city hopes the changes will ease truck congestion and pollution in the area. But business owners along the streets are nervous, saying the changes may have some unintended effects.
