A community board committee will take a second look at a series of changes that could transform Lincoln Square on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at 250 West 87th street. The Department of Transportation presented a plan in December that could alter the bowtie area on Broadway from 69th street to 62nd (read the full plan here).
Initial reactions to the plan were generally positive, although bicyclists were concerned it does not adequately protect bikers trying to navigate the treacherous area.
The committee will also look at crash stats from the 20th precinct, which could inform future decisions about which streets to target for changes. And the DOT will also discuss the M60 and M86, which is expected to get Select Bus Service this year, allowing riders to buy tickets before they board the bus. That will hopefully speed bus service. The full agenda for the meeting is below.
Transportation Committee, Andrew Albert and Dan Zweig, Co-Chairpersons
Tuesday, February 10, 7:00 PM
1. Second presentation by the NYC Department of Transportation on the proposed Lincoln Square Bow-Tie Pedestrian Safety Project.
2. Presentation by NYC Transit on the M60 and M86 bus routes.
3. Discussion of crash statistics/patterns in the 20th Precinct.
On Monday, another community board committee will be discussing illegal hotels, another hot UWS topic, at 6:30 at the same location.
