Many Signals Do Not Provide Sufficient Crossing Time

In 2017, the Hudson Yards/ Hell’s Kitchen ( HYHK) Alliance completed a comprehensive streetscape study in their catchment area of 30th to 42nd Street, 9th Avenue to 11th Avenue. One of the unexpected findings is that many traffic signals have not been properly adjusted to allow enough time for pedestrians to cross the road.

The map below illustrate which intersections are not in compliance and thus present dangerous situation for pedestrians. The HYHK asked the Community Board 4 (CB4) to support their request to DOT to adjust signals at those intersections . CB4 voted unanimously to support it and is writing a letter to the DOT to this effect.
