New plan in the works to reduce traffic congestion in Co-op City

There is a new plan to reduce traffic congestion in Co-op City and to also fix some highway ramps in the Bronx.

Co-op City?s roads are part of a six-year transportation bill that congress plans to pass next week. The bill would allow construction and redevelopment of roads nationwide. Congressmen Joseph Crowley, who represents Co-op City, said nearly $10 million in federal money has been secured for Bronx projects.

Some of the funding will also go towards an environmental impact study and repairs to Bronx sidewalks and curbs. A retaining wall on the I-95 overpass on Bartow Avenue will also be relocated with the money.
