This Week: Safer Walking and Biking Across the Harlem River

With few exceptions, getting across the Harlem River bridges isn’t exactly convenient or safe if you’re walking or biking. To fix that, a series of four DOT workshops to gather ideas about improving access between the Bronx and Manhattan kicks off this week. The meetings will inform the recommendations in DOT’s Harlem River Bridges Access Plan, to be released next year.

Here are the highlights. Check the Streetsblog calendar for the full listing of events:
