    from the photo it looks like the track was turning right from Jay onto Tillary no?

    What’s the progress on the 2nd Ave parking protected bicycle lane on the UES. Last I checked, it was extended from East Harlem, down to about E 88th St. Any progress?

    Also, the city FINALLY installed the jersey barrier on 1st Ave, between E 124th and 125th Sts; though it doesn’t go the whole way. Looks like there might be flex posts coming closer to E 125th St? Unfortunately, the bicycle lane is still between two automotive moving lanes between E 123rd and 124th Sts on 1st Ave, when it should be near the curb.

    I used it last week starting from 110th St and all was very nice until 88th or so, so I don’t think there’s anything new since you last checked.

    That’s unfortunate. Was hoping that they made progress around 86th St and below. I’ll continue trying to avoid 2nd Ave at all cost considering the ongoing construction.
