The roads around the Forest Hills T station, already a rough ride in these days of Arborway work, became even more gridlocked this morning when at least some of the traffic lights failed.
State troopers, responsible for the Arborway, rushed, well, crawled with everybody else, to direct traffic, but the damage was done.
Casey Brown shows us the 17 cars backed up on Weld Hill Street just trying to get onto Hyde Park Avenue around 7:30 a.m. "This traffic is an actual nightmare," she said, understatedly.
Things hadn't gotten any better by 8:45 a.m, when Sheri Ann Cheng took a look down Weld Hill towards Hyde Park Avenue. "Forest Hills the hottest of messes this morning," she affirmed. She added:
Been like this for 2 hrs today and since start of school yr. Hours of honking has been more unbearable than barrage of low-flying planes.
