Nassau Avenue to change direction

The Department of Transportation (DOT) anticipates that a reverse of the traffic flow on Nassau Avenue from one-way westbound to one-way eastbound will begin in or around the week of June 25.

Since the start of Nassau Avenue Reconstruction Project, businesses on Nassau Avenue have reported significant drops in revenue due to the inconvenience of the new westbound traffic flow.

Residents have also complained about the unnecessary difficulties in navigating the roads since the change, including major traffic jams on Norman Avenue.

“One way westbound traffic has created many problems on Nassau and Norman avenues,” said Assemblyman Joseph Lentol.

Lentol also hopes to work with the DOT to suspend alternate-side parking in the area. With construction and filming going on, parking has become extremely difficult for local residents.

Lentol believes that suspending or reducing alternate-side parking would not only help local residents, but also help some of the businesses recoup the losses they have suffered as a result of the reconstruction.

I love how much QUIETER the road has been since the construction. No busses and a one way street. It may be bad for businesses but as a resident who lives directly on the street, I love it. I would really like to see the busses stay off!
