    Nov 3, 2015 | StreetsBlog.org

    Addabbo has been agitating against the project most of the year, writing in the Queens Chronicle this April that "[r]ush-hour traffic would suffer significantly and, as someone who sits on that roadway every day during those times, I shudder to think it could get worse."
