Lower Manhattan Greenway Detour Set Until Spring
From the DOT cycling newsletter:
this month, the Route 9 greenway on Manhattan’s West Side will be
temporarily shifted west between Chambers Street and West Thames Street
along River Terrace, the World Financial Center Esplanade and South End
Along the provisional route, cyclists should be prepared
to yield to pedestrians and share the lane with cars at certain
junctures. Please ride slowly and with caution through this area!
The bike route adjustment will be in place through early
Spring 2010 and is due to construction projects in Battery Park City.
Detour and safety signage will be visibly posted along the route. A map
of the detour is available here.
If you take this route, let us know how it’s working out.
