You know this traffic video that's been displayed here for the past year? Well, Wednesday's the day when members of the public can show up and tell EDC and the roadway regulatory agencies what we think of their plan to construct ramps to enable a development that will draw at least 80,000 new vehicle trips per day to the vicinity of Willets Point -- having such far-reaching effects as to jeopardize travel through the Long Island Expressway / Grand Central Parkway / Kew Gardens interchanges, the latter of which we are presently spending $148,000,000.00 to improve.
Either voice your opinion at this hearing, or don't complain later if they build these ramps to enable development and your quality of life in Queens suffers as a result.
Date/Time: Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 4:30PM; news conference outside at 4:00PM
Location: Flushing Library, Kissena Blvd and Main Street
