This Week: The Revised Plan for a Safer Meeker Avenue
After DOT presented a safety proposal for Meeker Avenue last month that did not include bike infrastructure, locals called for a more thorough plan. DOT is set to bring the updated proposal back to the CB 1 transportation committee on Tuesday.
This week’s action kicks off tonight, when Vornado looks to get support from Manhattan CB 5 to bring back last year’s public spaces experiments around Penn Station and make them permanent.
Here are the highlights — you’ll find more events on the Streetsblog calendar.
