Hearing the rally cries of parents, teachers and school administrators from PS 11, the Department of Transportation will install two traffic lights in front of the Woodside school.

They will be installed by the end of May.

The PS 11 community demanded traffic calming measures in a rally in January, and their voice was heard.

“These two signals now make it easier for everyone in the community to cross, especially the growing number of students who are heading to and from school or visiting the Woodside Library,” said Queens DOT Commissioner Nicole Garcia.

The school added hundreds of seats when it opened its new $91.8 million annex last year.

As a result, they also changed entrances, leading to concerns about traffic and cars.
