DOT Public Forum on Willoughby Street Pedestrian-Only Plaza

In April 2006, the Department of Transportation created a new pedestrian plaza by restricting vehicular access to Willoughby Street between Adams and Pearl Streets and the Adams Street Service Road at Willoughby Street. By law, all street closures lasting longer than 180 days are subject to a Community Reassessment, Impact, and Amelioration (CRIA) Statement or Environmental Assessment Statement, and a public forum prior to the statement’s issuance.

At this forum, the Department of Transportation will present the results of an analysis conducted on the impacts of the creation of the new plaza. Members of the public are invited to attend and will be given the opportunity to make comments. This forum complies with Local Law 24 of 2005, (Title 34, Chapter 2, Section 2-16 of the Rules of the City of New York).
