This Week: First Avenue Bikeway and UES Citi Bike Expansion

Tonight, DOT will present plans to complete the First Avenue protected bikeway to the transportation committee of Manhattan Community Board 6. DOT installed sharrows from 49th Street and 59th Street, leaving a gap in the First Avenue protected lane, after CB 6 objected to the safer design four years ago. For this project to come to fruition it’s vital that DOT and the community board hear from people who are concerned with the safety of people who bike and walk on First Avenue.

Also this week, community boards will take up Citi Bike expansion on the Upper East Side, as well as bike lanes in Sunnyside and Long Island City. Details and more calendar highlights below.

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