Wednesday: CB 10 to Consider Harlem Bike Improvements

Plans for new bike and traffic-calming facilities in Harlem will go before Community Board 10 tomorrow night. As we reported last month, DOT intends to replace one lane of auto traffic with a buffered bike lane on Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard between W. 118th and W. 153rd Streets [PDF], completing a direct marked route between Central Park and the Macombs Dam Bridge.

The plan received a favorable resolution from the CB 10 transportation committee, though reaction so far from the community at large has been mixed. So, as always, the more voices the better.

Though DOT won't be making a presentation, it's important that the full board hear from the public on how valuable this project will be for cyclists and pedestrians. Area residents are especially encouraged to come out and show their support.

WHAT: Community Board 10 General MeetingWHEN: Wednesday, May 6, 6 p.m.WHERE: Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building, 163 West 125th Street, 2nd Floor Gallery
