Wet Weather Delays Delancey Street Safety Improvements

DOT rendering.

Yesterday we noted that the city would begin work next week to to make Delancey Street safer for pedestrians and cyclists.   We received an email from the Department of Transportation last night indicating that the project will be somewhat delayed due to the recent wet weather.

A DOT spokesperson indicated the work will “begin shortly” and is still scheduled to be completed by the last week of July. Most of the changes do not require significant construction; they involve shortening crosswalks, changing traffic regulations and (in the case of Clinton Street) removing barriers.
