Woodhaven Blvd at a standstill due to new bus lane
A new bus lane on Woodhaven Boulevard is causing a traffic nightmare.
Drivers said their rush hour commutes have nearly doubled since the change.
Cars were backed up for miles on Woodhaven Boulevard on Tuesday night, and drivers say it’s being caused by the select new bus service.
One lane of traffic is now for buses only — no cars allowed.
Trottenberg said the DOT redesigned the pinch points and corridors in the hope of creating three lanes of traffic that move. The problem is in rush hour it doesn’t.
There are people who say it has added an hour to their commute.
