College Point intersection to get four-way stop sign

"It is good news for College Point residents that DOT has at long last responded to the safety concerns at this location," Avella said. "When I first became involved in the College Point community over 20 years ago, this was one of the first civic issues I worked on."

The DOT examined the intersection at Avella's request, he said.

Local resident Greta Hruska said she is grateful for the new traffic signs.

"It will make it a lot safer for pedestrians crossing the street," she said in a statement.

A 26-year resident of the area, Carolyn Haseney, said the intersection has been a problem for many years.

"This location has been a safety hazard for two decades," Avella said. "It is about time that something has finally been done."
