CITY BEGINS BIG PROJECT TO FIX HORRIBLE POT RIDDEN JAMAICA AVE BUT SURROUNDING SIDE STREETS LIKE 89TH AVE & PARSONS BLVD WILL STILL LOOK LIKE SHIT – ANOTHER CITY INCOMPETENT FUCK UP

Would you take a shower and then not clean your ass? HELL NO (well some might). BUT that is the idiotic logic of this city and the awful city agency Department of Transportation. For years (and decades) Jamaica Avenue has been a mess of a street, all the more disgraceful because it is a main thorough fare. So finally this asshole city is going to finally take care of this long neglected street (but really aren’t all NYC streets neglected), while the surrounding side streets such as the even more awful 89th Ave (which you put your life in your hand on it, even just riding your bike or crossing it) and the horrible Parson Blvd (which lying DOT said they were going to fix in July of this year after NY1 did a story on the dangerous conditions of Parsons especially for the elderly & disabled), which to this day DOT has done shit). You can hear DOT make this statement at http://www.ny1.com/nyc/queens/news/2016/05/31/jamaica-residents-want-pedestrian-ramp-upgrades.html.

This city can never do anything 100% right, always has to be half ass, like pretty much this current administration and Southeast Queens politicians.

QUEENS — The city will soon repave a large portion of Jamaica Avenue in an effort to improve road conditions on one of the busiest thoroughfares in Southeast Queens, officials said.

The street will be repaved in two phases, starting in early November when the Department of Transportation will work on Jamaica Avenue between 224th Street and Francis Lewis Boulevard, the agency said.

That portion of the street has already been milled, according to the DOT.

Sometime next year, the Department of Design and Construction will repave the road between Francis Lewis Boulevard and 168th Street.

“We anticipate starting the project next year as soon as we select a contractor,” Shavone Williams, a spokeswoman for the agency, said in an email.

 The pothole-ridden street has long frustrated local residents and elected officials who said that poor road conditions on Jamaica Avenue contributed to numerous traffic problems in the area.

“For too long the roads in our community have not received the attention they deserve, making it unsafe for drivers and pedestrians alike,” Councilman Daneek Miller said in an email. “This major throughway serves residents and small businesses that supports Southeast Queens, and the new pavements will help to maintain the vehicles that drive on it.”
