Jackson Heights residents will have a chance to weigh in on redesigning a stretch of 34th Avenue that has been turned over to pedestrians and cyclists as part of the city’s Open Streets program.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) is hosting a Zoom meeting on the 34th Avenue Open Street Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and will be joined by Council Member Daniel Dromm, State Sen. Jessica Ramos and representatives from Queens Community Board 3.
The 34th Avenue Open Street, which runs from 69th Street to Junction Boulevard, is closed to cars and most vehicles from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day as part of the pandemic-age initiative. Vehicles are permitted to drive — at 5 MPH — on the closed street for local and emergency purposes.
