After the successful Corona & Jackson Heights Vision Zero Workshop, the T.A. Queens Activist Committee gathered community input about local streets that were in need of safety improvements. In coalition with Make the Road New York, the Partnership for a Healthier Queens, Immigrant Movement International and Queens Museum, the TAQAC launched a campaign for a Complete Street on 111th Street.
Our committee came together with change-making groups in the neighborhood to decide on a community vision for 111th. 111th street is needlessly wide and encourages dangerous driving, while providing no safe space for people walking and biking. Thanks to the unique location of 111th Street along the Western border of the Flushing Meadows Corona Park, this street sees uniquely high levels of pedestrian and bike traffic.
Our coalition held a series of walking street scans, street visioning workshops and public workshops to gather input. Our coalition is fighting for a safer street that has better pedestrian crosswalks, a protected bike lane and pedestrian islands. Join us as we fight for a safer 111th street for all neighbors, no matter how you choose to move!
