At the intersection of queens blvd, Yellowstone, and Jewel (north side of queens blvd), pedestrians are consistently given the “Walk” sign at the crosswalk while traffic is still coming. The reason seems to be that for cars on eastbound Queens Blvd approaching Yellowstone, making a left turn on Jewel takes so long to make that they can actually make their light on QB, but not pass through the crosswalk on the north side of QB until pedestrians already have the right of way. As a result, pedestrians are given the “Walk” sign when it is not yet safe to walk (often through no fault of the driver), and run the risk of getting hit.

There needs to be a crosswalk WITH SIGNAL going from Yellowstone to Jewel/Queens Blvd corner here. As you can see on the Google Streetview, someone is crossing here, as people need to do all the time. It is VERY DANGEROUS

Cars speed WAY TOO FAST towards this corner and stop past the stop sign/too close to crossing pedestrians. The crosswalk markings are barely visible any more. Between cars who exited the Grand Ventral & Van Wyck and cars who are trying to get back to Queens Blvd because they are stupidly not able to turn on Yellowstone anymore, this street sees way too much traffic and people driving too fast.

This intersection is a disaster. Banning left turns one way on Yellowstone didn't fix anything! Cars still make the left because the signage is poor. There is a problem with traffic in both directions of Yellowstone trying to make turns. Clearly there is a need for a series of signals in both directions which would allow for cars to make turns both ways on Queens Blvd while allow pedestrians to cross & cars to pass. FIX THIS PROBLEM INTERSECTION!

As is the case with many left turns on Queens Blvd in this area, the Left Turn lane here is not big enough and a few cars waiting to turn can back up into traffic and traffic back up for blocks. Exacerbating the problem here are pedestrians who ignore crossing signals.

This intersection needs a stop sign on 102nd St. Cars traveling on 67th Ave have a stop sign but it is hard to see cars traveling towards the intersection on 102 St when you stop on 67th Ave because 102 St is curved. Also, this is a busy pedestrian intersection with numerous schools and a hospital near by. Lots of people are walking to/from Queens Blvd subway station.

There is a need for clearly and brightly marked bike lanes, so many New Yorkers bike for work and we need to provide those safe conditions for them, especially on such a poorly lit, lightly patrolled and controlled artery as is Queens Blvd. Please put a bike lane!!

Should be a red light camera on Queens Blvd/Yellowstone intersection. I walk across it twice a day, and see a few cars red light running each time. This impedes the ability to walk cross the street as cars running red lights go in front of you when you have the walk or bottle up the intersection after running a red light.

There are two traffic lights on Yellowstone at each Queens Blvd corner and cars crossing the entirety of the Blvd speed right through both or at the very least the last one, which is where pedestrians cross. It must be confusing for drivers, making it dangerous for pedestrians. This NEEDS to be addressed!

There is a 3-block stretch here with no place to cross Queens Blvd. With limited paths between Austin St. and Queens Blvd. at this same stretch, it means walking routes from Austin St. to the North side of Queens Blvd. in this zone are circuitous.

This is extremely dangerous. Once the bike path ends at Eliot, eastbound cyclists must perilously decide to continue on the left or right side of the Queens Blvd. service road for the next 1-2 blocks before committing. It's not an easy task: it's a busy intersection, you're emerging from the shadow of I-495, and the "sharrows" are not clearly visible. Drivers gun it out of the light. Cyclist are quite literally dumped from the relative safety of the bike path into a pit of one of the very harrowing areas of the boulevard.

This intersection needs to be made friendly for cyclists who need to turn here. EB cyclists wanting to turn left on to 63rd Rd and WB cyclists needing to turn left on to 63rd Dr., need a safe and clear way to do this. Indeed NYPD sometimes tickets WB cyclists on QB who turn left (south) on 63rd Dr., which is absurd. Plenty of room in this intersection to include bike lanes crossing north and south.

This is a very wide intersection with long crossing distances. Medians need to be extended to narrow the intersection to slow turning cars and curb extensions are needed on the far side to slow down vehicles speeding straight across on to the local road.

This intersection with Junction Blvd is very dangerous because Junction splits from QB at a 45 degree angle. This encourages drivers to make very quick turns on to JB often failing to yield to pedestrians and speeding. The intersection needs to be "squared" A proposal to do this was part of this Districts 2014 Participatory Budgeting Ballot and I believe the idea has been shared with DOT.
