Your Post-Stella Thread to Report Bridge Path/Bike Lane/Sidewalk Snow
Crews were out during the storm yesterday clearing NYC’s bridge paths and protected bike lanes — and we have the proof! Thanks, Twitter.
Good to see @NYCSanitation plowing the Kent Ave Protected Bicycle Lane.

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…
Welcome to the bus stop. Ask your local wheelchair user about vaulting over three feet of trash and snow to use public transit. pic.twitter.com/4cOjAdxMyi

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.)
