This Week: Get the Ball Rolling on the 14th Street PeopleWay

Gondolas and self-driving taxis are not going to cut it during the L train shutdown. When the line goes out of service for an 18-month repair job, the city will need a system in place to move massive numbers of people. The only way to do it is to set aside street space for faster buses and safer biking and walking.

To get people excited about the possibilities, Transportation Alternatives has teamed up with Gothamist on a contest to envision "L-ternatives" for 14th Street. If you've got ideas, you can share them with professional planners and students at a workshop tonight about the 14th Street PeopleWay.

Check the Streetsblog calendar for the full list of this week’s events.

    • Monday: T.A. hosts a workshop for the 14th Street PeopleWay at Town and Village Synagogue. 6:30 p.m. -- RSVP required.
    • Tuesday: It's the Tri-State Transportation Campaign annual benefit! Support advocacy for effective transit and safe streets throughout the region. New Jersey state senators Loretta Weinberg and Bob Gordon are among the honorees. 6 p.m.
    • Wednesday: The MTA holds a public hearing on access changes to the 59th Street Columbus Circle station. 5 p.m.
    • Saturday: Want safer streets in Bushwick? Brainstorm biking and walking improvements for the neighborhood at. 10 a.m.

Watch the calendar for updates. Drop us a line if you have an event we should know about.
