BROOKLYN - The city's Department of Transportation is planning a major overhaul of a deadly street near the Williamsburg Bridge after complaints from residents in the area.
City Councilwoman Diana Reyna (D-District 34) says plans are in the works to revamp Borinquen Place, where at least three people have been killed since 2011. The changes include widened sidewalks, grooved pavement and thinner lanes.
Neighbors say they've been lobbying the city to have the road improved for cyclists and pedestrians.
No timetable has been set for construction to begin.
