THE BRONX - A new law will soon require the Department of Transportation to give city residents more information and power when it comes to street changes in their neighborhood.

Under the new plan, the DOT will update its website when a stop sign, speed bump or median is installed. Councilman James Vacca says the bill will allow residents to make requests about specific streets online.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed off on the bill this week and the DOT will begin posting updates on its website in about three months.
