Queens is the location of five of the nine worst maintained roads in New York City, according to the Center for an Urban Future, a city planning agency.
The report also said it found that 9 percent of the borough’s bridges are what it called structurally deficient and that Queens public housing developments are in the worst condition of any place in the five boroughs.
The center said the Jackie Robinson Parkway, the Shore Front Parkway, the Cross Bay Parkway, Hempstead Turnpike and Queens Boulevard were poorly maintained.
The report documents other “infrastructure challenges” in Queens, such as 29.7 percent of the borough’s streets were in fair or poor condition. This is worse than Brooklyn, where 27.2 percent of streets were in fair or poor condition, but better than Manhattan (42.7 percent), Staten Island (40.1 percent) and the Bronx (34 percent).
