Borough Park traffic island
It was a rare mea culpa from the New York City Department of Transportation. On Tuesday it began jack-hammering traffic islands in Borough Park that blocked ambulances, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles.
The Borough Park traffic islands that CBS 2 first told you about six months ago, the ones that caused such chaos, are apparently going to be removed.
It’s pushback for a dangerous traffic island in Borough Park. In surprise move, the community board voted it down and a Department of Sanitation boss dared to say it could cause injuries and deaths.
