Citywide Congested Corridor Study: Woodhaven Boulevard, Queens
Woodhaven Boulevard is a wide north-south road that runs from Queens Boulevard to the Liberty Avenue / Rockaway Boulevard intersection. At this point, continuing south, Woodhaven Boulevard becomes Cross Bay Boulevard, and connects to the Rockaways. The boulevard has a variety of land uses, including the Queens Center mall and other big box retail, as well as dense residential development and parks, and stretches with more neighborhood-oriented retail. The road has a very wide cross section, with as many as four travel lanes in the main roadway, and 3 lanes on the service roadway in each direction. At major intersections, only the service roadway meets the cross street, while the main roadway utilizes a flyover. The corridor crosses many major roads, including the Long Island Expressway, the Jackie Robinson Parkway, and Atlantic Avenue.
The entire length of Woodhaven Boulevard is a local truck route. The R, V and G subway lines are accessible from Queens Boulevard at Woodhaven Boulevard, and the Q11, Q29, Q53, Q38, Q59 bus lines use at least a portion of the route, with high ridership. The J and Z subway lines are accessible at Jamaica Avenue, and the A train has a station at Liberty Avenue. Pedestrian volumes vary greatly along the corridor, from very large numbers near the Queens Center mall, to sparser conditions in areas without much neighborhood retail.
