NYC DOT is on a roll this summer as construction season brings a slew of new projects to improve walking and biking, including some design treatments the city is trying out for the first time. These short videos are my way of saying thanks.
A DOT redesign proposed for Thomson Avenue by LaGuardia Community College doesn't do enough for street safety, and Queens volunteers with Transportation Alternatives are pressing the agency to come back with a stronger plan.
The next segment of the Queens Boulevard safety overhaul is well underway. For the third summer in a row, DOT crews are laying down green paint for bike lanes on the Queens Boulevard service roads and expanding pedestrian space in the medians.
Earlier this week, new pavement and bike lane markings went down on the path connecting the western Queens waterfront to Queens Plaza. The path is still cluttered with illegally parked cars, but that's about to change, according to DOT.
