Intersection needs a dedicated walk period as well as a dedicated right-turn lane with signal. Cars attempting to turn right at 55th Ave are met with large waves of pedestrians preventing them from making the turn, often times leading to blocking the intersection.

The implementation of the bike lane at this merge has caused extensive traffic issues and creates a dangerous condition for vehicles merging into the local lanes from the express lanes attempting to make a right turn onto 55th Ave.

This area really needs something to protect the pedestrians. The cars fly through on QB to get onto this 495 ramp and they have no care to any pedestrians crossing. Pedestrians need to feel safe crossing here!

Most of the cars are racing to get onto the 495 highway therefore lots of cars switch between multiple lanes to get onto the right hand side. It's dangerous. Please put markings to not allow drivers to merge at a certain time in point within the blvd.

The small island in this picture does not have an accessible ramp for a stroller to safely get onto when crossing QB. I usually have to stand in the middle of the street while waiting for the light to change. There needs to be a clear walk way in this area. It's a busy route between Queens center mall and the Costco mall area. PLEASE HELP ME GET MY STROLLER SAFELY ONTO THE CURB.

As a pedestrian 2 days a week, a motorist once a week and a cyclist 3 days a week, I believe that there should be a bike lane, however, first get rid of the parking lanes because double parking is a major issue and don't confine drivers to a small space to drive in. Give more priority to pedestrians in terms of signal timing.

This is a major pedestrian crossing. South of this area (Queens Blv) lies hundreds of family owned houses with children, elderly, etc. that would love to enjoy going over the mall, shopping center and adjacent areas but it is very risky for them to cross over. Feels like a vehicle will/can hit you anytime.

Since Grand Ave has 2 lanes crossing Queens Blvd from each side, this crossing should start with a left turn signal on both sides since there are so many left turning vehicles. Left lanes would be left turn only. First relieving some of the left turn traffic would make the crossing less crowded.

Most cars crossing QB are actually turning left, so much so that they blockade each other and no one can turn left. Simultaneous left turn signals at the beginning of the light isn't possible bc Van Loon is single lane, but maybe you can come up w a design change? Maybe Van Loon entering QB should not have parking so it can be 2 lanes, which would allow simultaneous left turn signal to relieve left turn traffic at the beginning of each the light. It's also a safety issue bc it's hard to see pedestrians in low light or simply bc of the pressure of the situation.

Drivers turning left into Service Road from Broadway are almost directly in line with Drivers coming north off Grand creating a conflict between Grand drivers either seeking to turn right into Main Line, north on Bway, or left onto QB. Cyclists and Pedestrians are at great risk while the drivers focus on each other as they cram through the intersection. Changes to light phases similar to the delayed NB Green at 69th st /Queens Blvd could be a big help, as well as better medians and crosswalks.

This entire intersection needs a total redesign. Don't even know where to start - cars turning from n/b Woodhaven into QBL , cars entering/exiting LI Expway onto QBL and Woodhaven, aggressive drivers, poor lighting and inhosptiable pedestrian atmosphere on QBL under LIE, terrifying for even experienced cyclists with no alternate route. Cars double-parked in front of mall. This may be the worst intersection in the entire borough of Queens.

This is a major bus to bus and bus to subway transfer, and there is hardly any sidewalk space on either side of Queens Boulevard for passengers to safely wait for busses. These busses are especially utilized by students and senior citizens, vulnerable road users. They need more space and time to safely cross Queens Boulevard between Grand and Broadway. Also, large trucks often can't make the narrow turn and I've seen the block traffic regularly.

This is a very important bus hub, but there's little to no planning for buses. They're often blocked in the stop by taxis and other cars. The road is excessively wide here and could allow for some true dedicated space for bus. And soon there will be SBS routes stopping here, too.

The city is like a human body. When our arteries are clogged we weaken and are more susceptible to death.

This are is too wide and has too many motor vehicle travel lanes for the volume of traffic it carries. There is ample room against the median for a protected bike lane.

Mark my words this day; transitions spots for bicycles vs. car are unsafe and will always be unsafe on Queens Blvd.. Transitions are a hazard for all who are crossing those spots, and transitions cannot be eliminated.
Bicycle lanes on QB will cause more congestion, reduced parking and with more congestion, leading to more asthma for kids. The proportion of people that will benefit from bike lanes vs. the people who will suffer from their effects is far from balanced. Has an environmental impact study been conducted on any part of Queens Blvd? A balanced study will find that bike lanes are not good for Q Blvd.
