    What happened at the Queensboro Bridge meeting?

    Also, concerning replacing that segment of Vernon Blvd with Sharrows. Why not convert that section into a parking protected 2 way path? Wouldn’t you want to minimize the number of moving lanes and distance between curbs near a park? This way, parking is added, but pedestrian safety is enhanced along that stretch. It will be the narrowest area to drive through and should be.

    Reports from last night indicate that CB 6’s transportation committee passed a resolution supporting DOT’s proposal in a near-unanimous vote.
