Planners from the city’s Department of Transportation briefed members of Community Board 3 this week on some modest changes on Delancey Street in the name of bike safety.
In the past, bicyclists coming from East River Park were routed to Grand Street in order to access the Williamsburg Bridge. Now they’re being sent along the north side of Delancey. DOT plans to add a shared automobile/bike lane on Delancey (with painted lines in the street). The plan, city officials say, will create greater awareness of bicyclists and offer a more direct route to the bridge.
You can see details in the presentation posted below.
