Feedback on the 8th and 9th Avenue bike lanes

As the work progresses , we have already a heard that some adjustments will be necessary: some parking regulations , some turns where pedestrians are not sufficiently protected, pedestrians using the 8th Avenue bike lane as a sidewalk extension amongst others.. Click Here for a picture of pedestrian refuge being built at 35th Street.

I observed a funny scene where a car was parked in the floating parking lane on 9th Avenue  at peak hour and every other new Jersey commuter got stuck behind it thinking this was a moving lane… it was hilarious, although you wonder why the DOT painted the lanes so much in advance of the rest of the work..

We also heard that the 8th avenue section between 39th and 42nd in front of the Bus Terminal is Hell and the section above 56th Street to connect to the Park is invisible making it real dangerous to get to the park .

Post your comments here so that we can relay them to the DOT ….
