New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer joined parents and children on July 6 to celebrate the installation of a traffic signal outside of PS 11 on Skillman Avenue in Woodside. The traffic signal comes after months of advocacy from Van Bramer and the local community.

“I am thrilled that the Department of Transportation has agreed to install these necessary signals and crosswalks in front of PS 11,” said Council Member Van Bramer. “Vision Zero means that we need to see dangerous areas and prevent potential fatalities before it’s too late. This signal means that before the start of summer school, the children here will be protected.”

“DOT is excited to announce the completion of the installation of the signal infrastructure,” said Nicole Garcia, Queens Borough Commissioner, city Department of Transportation. “The two new traffic signals, which are designed to have coordinated timing, and crosswalks will make it easier for everyone from our seniors to school children to cross the street.”

More than 1,000 students call PS 11, the Kathryn Phelan School, home. The school building was recently renovated and expanded to meet the growing needs of the community and the entrance of the school was moved to the intersection of 54th Street and Skillman Avenue. The new traffic signal will make crossing Skillman Avenue to get to Woodside Library, opposite the school, safer.
