Bronx drivers say construction making traffic worse on East Gun Hill Road

Many Bronx drivers say the construction on East Gun Hill Road is making traffic conditions worse.

Department of Transportation (DOT) workers are restructuring sidewalks on the East Gun Hill Road overpass to turn them into traffic lanes. Most Bronx drivers say the construction is adding traffic to the already congested area.

The DOT has detours set up for Bronx drivers and NYPD traffic officers are at intersections to help ease congestion. DOT officials say the construction will continue for the next three years.
