Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

at least in the Woodhaven/Cross Bay corridor.

The viaduct over the LIRR Montauk branch is the biggest bottleneck. It's limited to 3 lanes in each direction (between Metropolitan Ave and Union Tpk). NYCDOT's plan does not address this problem.

The solution is extremely simple and inexpensive. The service roads terminate at the LIRR ROW. Connect the service roads on either side of the LIRR ROW with a RR crossing. The Montauk branch is now used only by infrequent freight trains. Besides, there is a RR crossing less than 800 feet away at 88th St. It's not as if the freight trains are high balling it at this point.
