This Week: Crosstown Bike Lanes in Chelsea

12:41 PM EDT on August 22, 2011

This week's big agenda item is looking like Wednesday's meeting of the Manhattan Community Board 4 Transportation Committee, where DOT will present plans for non-protected bike lanes on 29th and 30th Streets. At present, safe east-west routes in the area are scarce. In July, cyclist Marilyn Dershowitz was killed on 29th Street near Ninth Avenue. Meeting details are here.

Other items on the calendar:

    • Tonight: The transportation committee of Manhattan Community Board 5 will follow up with DOT regarding Broadway pedestrian plazas, and will hear from the Department of Design and Construction on plans for the new Times Square.
    • Thursday: Transportation Alternatives' Brooklyn Volunteer Committee meeting.
    • Saturday: The Museum of the City of New York will host a family workshop called "Planning Urban Spaces and Places: Transportation."  The workshop is free with museum admission, though reservations are requested. The workshop includes a walking tour.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
