This Week: Mayoral Forum on Transportation, Safety, Livability

There are key meetings this week about Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge and the Sheridan Expressway in the South Bronx. There's also an opportunity to hear directly from the mayoral candidates about their transportation platforms. Head over to the full calendar for more events.

    • Monday: In the wake of Brooklyn Community Board 6's vote against a traffic calming plan for Fourth Avenue last week, CB 10 will consider a safety plan for Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge, which received a supportive vote from the CB's transportation committee last week. 7:15 p.m.
    • Tuesday: DOT will present a conceptual plan for a protected bike lane across the Pulaski Bridge, connecting Greenpoint and Long Island City, to Brooklyn Community Board 1's transportation committee. 6:30 p.m. This meeting has been cancelled. We'll post more information as it becomes available.
    • Wednesday: The University Transportation Research Center is hosting a forum where mayoral candidates will be asked questions about the city's transportation policy, community sustainability, safety and livability. 10:00 a.m.
    • Also Wednesday: Queens Community Board 7's transportation committee will hear plans from DOT for Safe Routes to School at P.S. 169 and curbside management on Northern Boulevard. 7:00 p.m.
    • Thursday: Join the Jamaica Bay Greenway Coalition to share ideas, needs and concerns about bicycle and pedestrian access to the greenway and Jamaica Bay parks in the Marine Park, Mill Basin, and Bergen Beach neighborhoods. 5:30 p.m.
    • Also Thursday: The city's multi-agency team studying the Sheridan Expressway and Hunts Point area will present its final recommendations. Last month, the city revealed its draft recommendations, including replacing a section of the Sheridan with a surface road. 6:00 p.m.
