City Plans Safety Improvements at Bowery/Delancey Intersection

Williamsburg Bridge Barriers Nearly Complete

The concrete barriers aimed at redirecting bicycle traffic at the bridge entrance are in place.

Closing the loop on a story we first brought you last June, we took a walk across Delancey Street (all 250 feet of it) this week to have a look at the new concrete barriers the city has installed to direct bike and pedestrian traffic flow at the entrance to the Williamsburg Bridge.

The barriers, which were not that popular with cyclists, were paid for with anti-terrorism funds, and along with countdown clocks on the walk lights, are an attempt to improve safety at the dangerous intersection of Delancey and Clinton streets.
