What Do You Think of the Changes at Grand & Clinton?
It’s been almost a year since the Department of Transportation began implementing safety improvements in the vicinity of Delancey Street. At next month’s meeting of Community Board 3’s transportation committee, you’ll have the chance to tell city officials whether you think the changes are working. Specifically, the panel will be focusing on the situation at the intersection of Grand and Clinton streets. As part of the safety plan, the DOT changed the traffic flow on this stretch of Clinton, allowing westbound traffic on Grand to turn right on Clinton in order to access the Williamsburg Bridge. Some residents are concerned that the change has created frequent traffic backups and pedestrian hazards at this crossing. The meeting takes place Tuesday, June 11, 6:30 p.m. at University Settlement, 273 Bowery.
