From the Daily News:
Queens Plaza, with its serpentine traffic patterns and dangerous pedestrian crossings, is receiving the lion's share - $39.4 million - of the direct federal funding to the borough. That allows the city to ante up more of the $135 million price tag for the project, Mayor Bloomberg announced Monday.
The borough's share of the $261 million in federal funds will also be used to rehab bridges, resurface and extend streets, and repair the Rockaway Boardwalk.
A dilapidated stretch of College Point Blvd., from Fowler Ave. to the Whitestone Expressway, will get a new concrete top to accommodate an anticipated increase in truck traffic.
The Greenpoint Ave. Bridge, which connects Long Island City and Brooklyn, will get $6 million in upgrades to extend the life of the bridge by 10 years.
