This Week: Will DOT Present a Bolder Plan for LIC Streets?

With Labor Day come and gone, community board meetings are starting to pick up again. On Thursday, Queens Community Board 2 will hear an update from DOT on the Long Island City/Hunters Point reconstruction project, which will rebuild the neighborhood’s streets for the first time in a century. So far DOT has failed to include major redesigns like a protected bike lane on 11th Street, the most direct connection between the Pulaski Bridge and the Queensboro Bridge. Update: DOT will present on the project to CB 2 in October.

Check the Streetsblog calendar for a full list of this week’s events.
