College Point Corporate Park Transportation Improvement Strategy

Last Updated May 15, 2017

NYCEDC, in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT), is developing a community-driven Transportation Improvement Strategy for the College Point Corporate Park with VHB as the primary consultant. The strategy will examine existing conditions and produce short-term, mid-term, and long-term recommendations to address transportation concerns. 

College Point Corporate Park occupies 550 acres and is home to over 200 businesses with an array of uses, including commercial office, industrial and retail, adjacent to the neighboring low-density residential area in northern Queens. NYCEDC manages the College Point Corporate Park on behalf of the City of New York, coordinating infrastructure and grounds improvements and maintaining the site's streets and sidewalks.

Opportunity

The Transportation Improvement Strategy will take a comprehensive view of how residents, visitors, and businesses use the existing road network. While many drive into the Corporate Park, the area is served by the Q20, Q25, Q65, and Q76 bus routes. The nearest subway station is the 7 located one mile away at Flushing Avenue-Main Street. The Transportation Improvement Strategy will identify existing challenges. Based on these findings, the City will develop short-term, mid-term, and long-term recommendations to address these challenges. All suggested improvements will be consistent with the mission of Mayor de Blasio's Vision Zero initiative.

Study Area

The City is taking a comprehensive look at key arteries into the College Point Corporate Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.

NYCEDC expects the Transportation Improvement Strategy to run from November 2015 through May 2016.
