CB Action Tomorrow: New Bike Routes for Harlem and Greenwich Village

Two Manhattan community boards are meeting Tuesday evening to discuss new bike routes planned by DOT. If you'd like to support the proposals, and perhaps nudge DOT to beef up some of the provisions for cyclists, here are the details.

At 6:15, CB2's Transportation Committee will consider two routes:
one linking the south end of the Fifth Avenue bike lane to the Grand
Street lane, creating a route from Midtown to the Manhattan Bridge, and
another linking the Hudson River Greenway with the crosstown routes on
9th and 10th Streets. A source informs us that parts of the proposals
rely heavily on sharrows instead of dedicated space, so you may want to
encourage alternatives that afford cyclists greater safety. This one
is happening at NYU's Silver Building (32 Waverly Place, Room 411).

At 6:30, DOT will present plans for a buffered bike route on Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard [PDF] to CB10's Transportation and Parks and Recreation committees. Head to the Oberia Dempsey Center (127 W. 127th Street) to learn more and give your feedback.

Also tomorrow night, DOT will present its Broadway pedestrian plan -- officially called "Green Light for Midtown" -- to CB7. The meeting starts at 7:00 at 250 W. 87th St. (at Broadway), on the second floor.
