NYC DOT is launching a one-year, community-driven planning process to increase safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling between the Bronx and Manhattan across the Harlem River. We will lead a series of community planning workshops, starting tonight, to develop a planning document, the Harlem River Bridges Access Plan.
We would love for you to join us tonight or at one of our upcoming workshops—and, if possible, to help us spread the word!
Our first series of workshops, during which we will review existing conditions and solicit feedback on transportation priorities, will be held on the following dates:
Harlem River Bridges Access Plan Workshops:
Bridges South of Macombs Dam
- June 15- 6:30pm @ Taino Towers (221 E. 122nd St, Manhattan), PLEASE NOTE: The closest entrance to the meeting room is located 2383 Second Ave.
- June 16- 6:30pm @ Hostos Community College, Savoy Multipurpose Room (457 Grand Concourse, Bronx)
Bridges North of Macombs Dam
- June 22- 6:30pm @ Wilson Major Morris Community Center (459 W. 152nd Street, Manhattan)
- June 23- 6:30pm @ Lehman College, Faculty Dining Room/Music Building (250 Bedford Park Blvd West, Bronx)
The Harlem River Bridges Access Plan will describe community preferences for increasing access to jobs, schools, and recreational amenities on both sides of the river, and will serve as a tool to guide future investment and seek funding for future transportation projects.
