- Resurfacing of Houston between Second Avenue and the FDR
- Installing parking protected bike lanes on Houston between Forsyth and the FDR
- Installing delineator-protected and curbside bike lanes on Houston between Second Avenue and Forsyth .. and between Ludlow and Essex
- Creating painted pedestrian islands along Houston between Ludlow and Avenue C
- Installing new bicycle parking on Houston at Orchard and Avenue D
Plans for protected bike lanes along this corridor date to the fall of 2020 ... and put into place to provide cyclists a safer passage on city streets with the closure of the East River Park Greenway until 2026.
This Houston Street work comes four months after the $1.45-billion East Side Coastal Resiliency (ESCR) project shut down bike access along the East River starting at Montgomery Street.
The city installed new bike lanes for Avenue C late last summer.
Great, protected bike lanes make it harder for double parking to block the bike lane. Though there's tons of cars on ave C every day that park in the bike lane but never get a ticket. Needs more vigilante reporting.
It would be great for lanes to be expanded westward beyond 2nd Ave.
...and now we need to charge excise taxes on bikes so they are paying their fair share. And demand all riders have insurance.
I AGREE---excise tax on bikes---right after---we charge for FREE on street parking....
And what about all those pedestrians freely walking the sidewalks without any consideration for the cost of maintenance, simply appalling :(
