City to repave stretch of Union Turnpike

City to repave stretch of Union Turnpike

One of the benefits of living in Jamaica Estates, the most sought-after community in Queens, is its proximity to shopping, dining and entertainment, parks, and renowned colleges and universities. Whether traveling to them by car, bus or taxi, getting around the borough is should become easier thanks to road and transportation projects by the city.

Making roads safer in Jamaica Estates

The potholes and rough pavement that have plagued motorists in Jamaica Estates for quite some time may soon be only bad memories thanks to a recent announcement by the New York City Department of Transportation. Repaving of major thoroughfares in Jamaica Estates that was not scheduled to begin until 2020 has already started.

Union Turnpike, Utopia Parkway and Francis Lewis Boulevard are among the roads designated for repaving. The repaving of Union Turnpike, which drivers described as being in terrible condition due to sections torn up by crews doing work on underground utilities in the area, will improve driving conditions for people going to St. John’s University and Cunningham Park.

Residents of Jamaica Estates should not be too inconvenienced during the project. Construction crews are scheduled to work during nighttime hours, so commuters and others going about their daytime routines will not have to deal with road closures and detours.

Completion of another project should help commuters

Completion of a major road and bridge project along the Long Island Expressway in Queens should help Jamaica Estates residents by easing traffic congestion when traveling to LaGuardia and JFK airports. The work was sorely needed to repair and modernize road surfaces, drainage and lighting.
