The de Blasio administration’s Queens Boulevard redesign is a major success, with serious crashes down and cyclist counts up on the four miles of the street that have a bike lane. This year, DOT plans to extend the redesign east from Rego Park, adding bike lanes between Yellowstone Boulevard and Union Turnpike.
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. 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.
