I am following up on the implementation of the Maspeth By-Pass project. Following briefings in your offices and meetings at the Community Boards, we incorporated many suggestions into our final plans and received approval to proceed from the Community Boards. AS you know, we distributed flyers to the businesses along the corridor these past two weeks.
Attached is a copy of the last presentation detailing the plans. We have already installed many of the curbside regulations. Road work was completed on Thursday night with the elimination of the concrete island, relocation of a smaller island which will hold a stop sign and resurfacing of the 5-legged intersection. We will be converting the following streets to a one-way direction tomorrow:
• 58th Street - converted to one-way SB between 55th Drive and Maspeth Avenue (the five leg intersection). This is within CB 2.
• Maurice Avenue - converted to one-way NB between Maspeth Avenue (the five leg intersection) and 55th Drive. This is within CB 5.
• 59th Street - converted to one-way SB between 55th Drive/Maurice Avenue and 56th Avenue. (Within CB 5)
Depending upon the weather, the line markings may go in tomorrow or on the next non-rain date. The multitude of signs that will be installed with continue throughout the month.
I cannot thank you enough for all your help, feedback and input into this important project. Please don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions.
