This Week: Crosstown Bike Lanes, Upper East Side Bike Share

Happy New Year! In the first week of 2012, Manhattan community boards continue to discuss the expansion of the city's bicycle infrastructure. DOT will present plans for new crosstown bike lanes on 29th and 30th Streets -- routes whose importance was underscored by the death of Marilyn Dershowitz last year -- to CB 5's transportation committee. In addition, public outreach for bike-share continues at a meeting of CB 8's transportation committee.

    • Wednesday: The Upper East Side continues its discussion of bike-share with representatives of DOT at a meeting of CB 8's transportation committee. 6:30 p.m.
    • Thursday: DOT presents its plans for a new pair of crosstown bike lanes on 29th and 30th Streets to Manhattan CB 5's transportation committee, which represents Midtown. 6:00 p.m.
