DOT Approves Street Resurfacing for Hazen Street and Ditmars Boulevard

Hazen Street Now

Today Senator Michael Gianaris announced that the Department of Transportation approved a street resurfacing project at Hazen Street and Ditmars Boulevard, in Astoria. Nearby residents expressed concern over poor pavement conditions at this location, pointing out that the intersection is host to a high volume of foot and car traffic. Senator Gianaris had this to say in a press release: “It is unacceptable for seniors to be afraid to walk in their own neighborhood or for drivers to be wary of damaging their cars due to poorly paved roads. I am glad the DOT listened to our community and is taking steps to remedy this problem as quickly as possible.” UPDATE: The folks at Senator Gianaris’ office just checked out the streets in question and saw that the DOT already started work on the project; the improvements are pictured above.
