ADVISORY: NYC DOT CELEBRATES WESTERN QUEENS PROTECTED BIKE LANE UPGRADES, ENHANCING SAFETY FOR ALL, IMPROVING INTERBOROUGH AND WATERFRONT ACCESS
NEW YORK – New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez joined elected officials and advocates to celebrate the substantial completion of newly installed protected bike lanes in Long Island City and Hunters Point, along 11th Street, 44th Drive, and Jackson Avenue.
The protected bike lanes installed on these three streets in Western Queens enhance safety for all road users and create dedicated, safe cycling lanes to better connect to the Queens waterfront as well as the Queensboro and Pulaski bridges. As part of the project, NYC DOT constructed concrete bike lane barriers along two blocks of 11th Street, from 48th Avenue to 47th Avenue to fortify the bike lanes in both directions and ensure they remain clear for cyclists.
At 11th St and 45th Rd
Queens, NY 11101
