DOT to add wider medians to Pennsylvania Avenue

Pedestrian safety improvements are coming to Pennsylvania Avenue as part of Select Bus Service upgrades in the Spring Creek Towers area.
The city is hoping to make things safer by building wider medians at seven intersections along Pennsylvania Avenue between Flatlands and Seaview avenues. The goal is to provide shorter and more protected pedestrian crossings.
The MTA says the upgrades will support the upcoming B82 Select Bus Service route.
The Department of Transportation says it plans to have construction complete in time for the launch of the B82 Select Bus Service route on Oct. 1.
