THE BRONX - The city is taking action in response to number of traffic safety complaints at a troublesome intersection in Parkchester. 

The Department of Transportation conducted a traffic study of the Hugh Grant Circle last month, and found that the crossing did need more regulation. It now plans to install a crosswalk and traffic light where the circle meets Westchester Avenue.

Mili Bonilla led the charge to keep commuters safe after a new entrance to the No. 6 train was installed. She contacted Councilwoman Annabel Palma, who then alerted the DOT, which agreed to investigate.
