This Week: DOT’s Revised Plans for 110th Street Bike Lanes

The public will get another look tomorrow at DOT's bike plan for 110th Street on the West Side.

In June, DOT proposed painted bike lanes for 110th Street between Riverside Drive and Frederick Douglass Circle, at the northwest corner of Central Park. Members of Manhattan Community Board 7 said that wasn't good enough, asking DOT to come back with a design that protects cyclists from motorized traffic.

As a connection to the greenway and Central Park, and the southernmost east-west cross street before Central Park disrupts the grid, 110th gets a sizable amount of bike traffic. Those numbers will only go up following Citi Bike’s recent Harlem expansion.

On Tuesday, DOT will come back to CB 7 with its revised design. If you want 110th Street to be safe for New Yorkers of all abilities to bike on, it's important to show up.
