Countdown Signals Coming to Delancey Soon?

If you make it a habit of crossing Delancey, you’re all too aware it can be a death-defying sprint from one side to another. Once the walk signal turns green you’ve got something like 20 seconds before the cars and trucks start rolling off of the Williamsburg Bridge ramp.

Several months ago, the city announced a plan to add countdown clocks on Delancey and several other streets in the neighborhood. We were curious where the project stands, so we asked the Department of Transportation.
