DOT to study traffic at busy Co-op City intersection for new signal
The Department of Transportation (DOT) will again study a Co-op City intersection that police say was the site of 96 accidents in one year.
Many motorists and Community Board 10 members say they have repeatedly asked the DOT to install a left-turn signal at Bartow and Baychester avenues for more than a decade. A Hutchinson River Parkway exit funnels into the intersection, which is also near a busy shopping mall. Although the DOT has studied the site before, it determined that a signal was not needed.
The new study comes after a lawmaker presented the accident statistics to the DOT.
