Canal St needs protected bike lanes in both directions from West St to the Manhattan Bridge.

Canal St - Varick St - Avenue Of The Americas

Traffic Enforcement Agents routinely direct drivers to block crosswalks. Intersection is complex, busy, and dangerous for walking or biking.

A bike lane on Canal is direly needed. Getting to the area between Canal and Spring St from lower manhattan is very challenging, as there are few bike lanes and few ways to get from the Hudson River Greenway into the area.

Canal St - Varick St - Holland Tunnel Approach

It is very dangerous to cross this intersection as both a pedestrian and biker, crossing south both to continue walking down Varick St. Cars are turn into the crosswalk and bike markings at a very narrow angle, and so when going through the crosswalk you it is impossible to look at incoming traffic, unless you look behind your back. It doesn't help that at around 6pm, when I get off work, there are almost always cars blocking the crosswalk.

It is extremely difficult to cross Canal Street on a bicycle at this intersection (going north-bound on 6th Ave). 6th Ave has bike lanes/markings that end abruptly at this point, and most cars go through this intersection at high speed. Even though I immediately ride out of the intersection to get to the citibike station on the northwest corner of the intersection, this is always the most dangerous part of my commute to work. Almost every time I bike through this intersection, I get honked at by aggressive drivers who pass me dangerously close and fast.

Protected bike lane is absolutely necessary. It cannot be just pain, it has to be protected.

All Canal street is tough to navigate by bike! Very scary with all the trucks, streets coming in at odd angles, and potholes. Please add a bikelane to facilitate safe x-town biking

Difficult Turn/Crossing

Watts St - Canal St - Manhattan

Vehicles use Watts Street (from West Street) to attempt to cross into the Holland Tunnel Lanes.This means they block the pedestrian crosswalk and also the Eastbound through lane for Canal St.This causes a traffic backup both on Canal Street and also on Watts Street often back to West St.As I write this, an ambulance is trying to make its way through 2 "lanes" of traffic on Watts to get to Canal St.Yesterday, two vehicles drove onto the sidewalk to get around the blocked lanes.This has happened while I have walked with my son and a car appeared next to us on the sidewalk.As I write, I have been listening to incessant honking for hours.This is beyond what should be expected of any NY resident as the streets are left unmanaged (DAILY) and out of town vehicles are allowed to make our streets unsafe and our living unbearable, all without consequence.
