DOT has completed its installation of a wider sidewalk and protected bike lane from W38th to W45th Streets,  with NO CONFLICTS with vehicles (full split phase signals, no left turn at W42nd Street)  and striped green at W45th Street ! This is the beginning of a new era for pedestrian and bicyclist safety!  THANK YOU to DOT’s pedestrian unit and to Port Authority staff who worked together to design these changes in a challenging area.

The pavement was also fixed in multiple locations along the bike lane , although much more needs to be done .
