HUNTS POINT - The Department of Transportation is taking steps to improve traffic safety throughout the Bronx. Crames Square in Hunts Point is one of the neighborhoods to get a traffic overhaul. Residents often complained about the number of traffic lights and the lack of pedestrian islands and crossing guards.
