Your Post-Stella Thread to Report Bridge Path/Bike Lane/Sidewalk Snow

10:14 AM EDT on March 15, 2017

Crews were out during the storm yesterday clearing NYC's bridge paths and protected bike lanes -- and we have the proof! Thanks, Twitter.

Our snow clearance Achilles' heel remains the legal no-man's-land where sidewalks transition to roadbeds, which everyone has to cross but no one is required to clear.

A lot of bus stops are still buried, too...

The city isn't taking 311 complaints about sidewalk conditions, but you can vent to Streetsblog. Tell us all about your post-Stella walking and biking travails in the comments. (Sneckdown fanatics -- you'll get your fix in a separate post, promise.)
