New York Accident Prevention: Pedestrian island and other safety measures to be installed at deadly intersection of Ocean Parkway and the Prospect Expressway with Church Avenue in Brooklyn

After a woman was struck by a truck causing her death at the Ocean Parkway Intersection in Brooklyn last June (see our previous blog), the New York Sate Department of Transportation finally approved a $200,000 crosswalk makeover that had been delayed since 2012.

A pedestrian island and other enhancements that will improve safety for all users will be installed on Ocean Parkway near Church Ave where cars funnel onto the expressway.

The construction is expected to start this fall.
