Traffic study office reopens Downtown
A regional traffic study council, whose office in the World Trade Center was destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001, when three of its employees died, celebrated its return to Lower Manhattan last month.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new office of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council on the 22nd floor of 199 Water St. on Thurs., Nov. 18, included the announcement of a Sept. 11 Memorial Program for Regional Transportation Planning in memory of Charles Lesperance, Ignatiuus Adanga and See Wong Sum, who perished in the attack.
The new program will explore new concepts and enhance public participation in transportation issues.
Joseph Boardman, commissioner of the New York State Department of Transportation, congratulated NYMTC on reopening its offices Downtown.
