From the Daily News:
The road to building a retail mecca in Queens is paved with backed-up one-way streets.
Rego Center opened its doors a few weeks ago, hoping to lure shoppers with Kohl's, T.J. Maxx and Century 21 department stores. And bargain hunters are coming.
But traffic in the already congested area, which includes the Long Island Expressway, Queens Blvd. and Junction Blvd., is also starting to jam up.
Costco, the bulk discount chain known for luring people who love to fill their cars with pallets of discounted merchandise, hasn't even opened up its basement store yet.
Local officials have been working with the city Transportation Department and developer Vornado Realty Trust to hash out traffic congestion issues.
DOT officials have reviewed plans and met with local leaders.
They are mulling a proposal to convert 62nd Drive to a one-way street and change the timing on traffic signals at Junction Blvd. and 62nd Drive.
And if you think it's bad now, wait until they build the 2 residential towers that go along with this project!
