Statement from Borough President Vito Fossella commending Commissioner Roseann Caruana on swift response to traffic at a Richmond Ave intersection
Our office called DOT Commissioner Roseann Caruana and her team last week to request a solution to the heavy traffic often found at the intersection of Richmond Avenue and Draper Place, across from the former Barnes and Noble.
Under her guidance, the DOT team was able to quickly find the reason of the very long backup at this particular intersection. They extended the left turn green signal by a few seconds so that more cars could alleviate the lane and improve traffic flow.
These are the simple and frustrating quality-of-life issues that have a large impact on the Staten Island commuter. We want to applaud Commissioner Caruana and her team for a swift response and fixing the situation in a timely manner.
