DOT announces traffic study in N. Williamsburg
Traffic is becoming a problem as Williamsburg grows as a popular place for people to live and a go-to destination for tourists, officials say.
The city's Department of Transportation announced a traffic study Tuesday in North Williamsburg and Greenpoint to address the growing issue.
As the neighborhoods have boomed in the past several years, so have complaints of heavy traffic, large trucks and double parking.
The 18-month study will help officials plan to make the area safer and easier to traverse, the DOT says.
Part of the study includes feedback from residents, who can report issues through a website.
The MTA will also cut off the L train line in the area to make tunnel repairs, which officials say will be a factor in the study.
