On Saturday, the Department of Transportation (DOT) added a Neighborhood Loading Zone on the north side of Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue...
• Package deliveries by commercial vehicles
• Taxi and car service pick-up and drop-off
• Active loading and unloading of personal vehicles
the DOT website.
As Streetsblog recently reported, the DOT "is now required by law to install at least 500 loading zones annually to mitigate the boom in deliveries."
Last summer, the city added loading zones on several sidestreets as part of the new Avenue C bike lanes.
