Pedestrian Improvements Planned for LIC Pulaski Bridge Interchange

DOT has plans to improve conditions for pedestrians on the Queens side of the Pulaski Bridge, which connects Greenpoint, Brooklyn with Hunters Point in Long Island City. According to a recent presentation [PDF], pedestrians will benefit from additional crosswalks, new markings and signalization to reduce turning vehicle conflicts, and pedestrian islands.

The plan was presented to the Community Board 2 Land Use Committee last month and to a transportation sub-committee on February 2, a DOT spokesperson told Streetsblog. A full board vote may come as early as next month. As of now DOT expects to begin construction in the spring. The project should take one to two months to complete. Given CB2's record on livable streets issues, Queens advocates may want to keep an eye on this one.
