The city was supposed to begin making safety improvements to Delancey Street about a week ago, but delayed the project due to wet weather. There hasn’t been much of a break from the rain, but this afternoon street crews appeared to be on the job — making minor modifications to the roadway.
The plan is to create pedestrian plazas, narrowing the distance people must cross, and to redirect traffic in some spots. The improvements entail repainting and the installation of pylons, so the work should not take too long. If you would like to see details – block by block – have a look at the DOT’s presentation to Community Board 3 earlier this year.
