DOT Pitches New Delancey Street Safety Upgrades (Again)
It’s back to the drawing board.
The city will present yet another plan to improve safety along Delancey Street, one of the more dangerous thoroughfares in the Five Boroughs.
Goal of this $22.7 million project is to “transform Delancey Street primarily through safety and streetscape improvements.”
The project (HWM2025) follows seven months after the city rolled out new pedestrian islands and protected bike lanes between Allen Street and the Williamsburg Bridge.
New features touted include:
- Elevated two-way bike lanes in either direction
- Sidewalk extensions, including “neck-outs”
- Pedestrian refuge at crosswalks
- Widening of center medians
- Reducing one eastbound travel lane
Reps from Department of Transportation are expected to pitch the proposal to the transportation subcommittee of Community Board 3 later tonight.
