24 Intersections now SAFER in Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen

8 years into the DOT Traffic study of Hell’s Kitchen, DOT is adding six (6) Split phases and 18 Lead Pedestrian Intervals in Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen, a  welcome news for the residents of these neighborhoods overwhelmed by the horrendous thru traffic.

Combined with those already installed as part of other projects ( bike lane, crash remediations etc..)  this brings the total to 24 Split Phases and 24 Lead Pedestrian Intervals. Protecting crossings is beneficial to pedestrians, to bicyclists who can get a head start and to people with disabilities who cannot move as fast as others.

We are grateful to DOT for these installations and look forward to the next phase of improvements.
