THE BRONX - Some of the borough’s narrowest streets are being reduced to one-way traffic. 

The city's Department of Transportation has put up new signs on eight streets in Soundview and Castle Hill that are no longer open to two-way traffic. They’re all in the vicinity of Zerega Avenue and the Cross Bronx Expressway. 

The changes are to address safety and traffic concerns from Community Board 9. Many had complained that with cars parked on both sides, there isn’t room for two vehicles to drive through at the same time. 

Most people say the switch is necessary, but they’re worried about pedestrians because drivers are still mistakenly driving the wrong way. 

The DOT plans to make the same changes to another four blocks in the same area starting this weekend.
