The Department of Transportation is resurfacing a small stretch of roadway along Hazen Street (by Ditmars Boulevard) following a series of complaints from local senior citizens and motorists.

Several complaints from seniors who were concerned they could trip and fall—while drivers expressed concern about approaching the Grand Central Parkway, which is a block away.

At the request of Senator Michael Gianaris, the Department of Transportation approved a street resurfacing project, which is currently taking place.

“It is unacceptable for seniors to be afraid to walk in their own neighborhood or for drivers to be wary of damaging their cars due to poorly paved roads,” Gianaris said.

“I am glad the DOT listened…and is taking steps to remedy this problem.”
