Woodhaven Boulevard Reconstruction: The NYCDOT has advised us that they will reconstruct Woodhaven Boulevard from Union Turnpike to 81st Rd, and implement safety improvements as part of the Q52/Q53 Select Bus Service Project:

  • Remove service road medians to create simpler central median with pedestrian refuge
  • Maintain three vehicular traffic lanes in each direction
  •  Install curbside bus-only lanes that allow for right turns to the next intersection or driveway
  • Restrict left turns from Woodhaven Blvd to Union Turnpike
  • Create turn bay to allow for U-Turns at 81st Rd for access to Union Turnpike

According to NYCDOT, the work will; Simplify Traffic, Improve Bus Travel Times, Improve Pedestrian Safety, and Organize Vehicle Movements.

The work will commence next week and is weather dependent.
