A section of the Riverside Park bike path from 59th to 70th Street is closed for the next three weeks to allow for construction on Riverside Park South. Bicyclists are being redirected to the pedestrian path in the interim.
This Riverside Park project is expected to bring plazas, a play area for kids and a bike path and “bikeway,” among other amenities, to the area from 65th to 68th Street. It’s set to be completed by next August. Another section of the project will turn the area from 65th to 63rd into sports fields, and was also projected to be completed next year.
Thee bike path should reopen by November 24.
