New Traffic Light Coming to Madison and Jefferson Streets

Madison and Jackson streets.

A new traffic light is coming to the intersection of Madison and Jefferson streets.  Back in July, Community Board 3 approved a resolution asking the Department of Transportation to look at beefing up safety at this location, since a playground, Gouverneur Healthcare Services and the Educational Alliance are all nearby. State Sen. Daniel Squadron also advocated for the new light, and this month his office received word from the DOT that the request has been approved.  The job is tentatively scheduled to take place by the end of April.
