THE BRONX - The Department of Transportation says it plans to make the south Bronx safer for pedestrians and bike riders.

A representative for the DOT says statistics found Crame Square to be the second-most dangerous intersection in all of New York City.

Among the changes are the elimination of a left hand turn lane on Hunts Point avenue and new bike lanes on Tiffany Street.

All of the improvements, including modifications at other local intersections, are expected to be under way by June.
