How would you change the Cross Bronx Expressway?
The NYC Department of Transportation will hold meetings to get public input about reconnecting communities through the Cross Bronx Expressway.

BRONX, New York (WABC) -- Beginning March 30, New Yorkers will be given the chance to weigh in on the future plans for the Cross Bronx Expressway.

The city is offering public meetings that will ask residents for input on how to better connect communities from the Harlem River to the Hutchinson River Parkway.

The feedback will be used in connection with a recent study of the area, assessing the negative impact the roadway has had on nearby neighborhoods for decades.

March is Women's History Month and one woman making her mark on New York history is Kathy Hochul, the first female elected governor or the state.

The idea, stemming from the Adam's Administration, hopes that the study will develop a community vision to minimize the harm the Cross Bronx has caused to families and communities along the expressway.

"Together with Bronx communities, Mayor Adams, and partners throughout government, we are crafting a holistic vision for the Cross Bronx Expressway corridor to envision a cleaner, healthier borough and remedy mistakes of the past," said Edith Hsu-Chen, Executive Director of the Department of City Planning. "Stakeholders from across the borough and city have an opportunity to share how they've been affected by the Cross Bronx and what they would like to see built in the years to come."

The meetings will be held both in person and virtually through April 10.
