This Week: Speak Up for a Safer 111th Street in Corona

1:01 PM EDT on March 13, 2017

DOT’s current plan for 111th Street includes a two-way protected bike lane and wider median tips, but the pedestrian crossings are not as safe as the original plan.

Update: The Queens CB 4 meeting and Brooklyn CB 1 meeting scheduled for Tuesday have been rescheduled because of the impending snowstorm. Keep an eye on the Streetsblog calendar for new dates.

Streetsblog calendar highlights below. Check the full calendar for more info on these and other events.

    • Tuesday: Brooklyn Community Board 1 is expected to vote on the DOT plan to improve access to the Brooklyn entrance of the Williamsburg Bridge bike path and upgrade connections from the bridge to East Williamsburg, Bushwick, and Queens. Swinging 60s Senior Center, 211 Ainslie Street, Brooklyn. 6 p.m.
    • Tuesday: Queens CB 4 will vote on the DOT plan for a safer 111th Street. VFW Post 150, 51-11 108th Street, Corona. 7 p.m.
    • Wednesday: Join Transportation Alternatives in asking City Council members to sign a letter demanding Mayor de Blasio apply the Vision Zero Street Design Standard to all future street construction. City Council offices, 250 Broadway. 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. It's OK if you can only make it for part of the afternoon. RSVP here.
    • Wednesday: The Manhattan CB 4 transportation committee will discuss the new Port Authority Bus Terminal. 6:30 p.m.
    • Thursday: DOT will present two projects to the Brooklyn CB 2 transportation committee: a reconfiguration of the already-approved Streets Seats parklet and bike corral at the northeast corner of Rockwell Place and Fulton Street, and a post-implementation report on the Lafayette Avenue bike lane and traffic-calming project.
