Since the spring of 2015, NYC DOT has been leading a community-driven planning process to increase safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists travelling between the Bronx and Manhattan across the Harlem River. The idea is to identify transportation efforts preferred by the community to create a continuous cross-borough user experience. The information obtained from the community will then become a part of the Harlem River Bridges Access Plan, a tool that will be used to guide future investment and funding for capital projects within the area.
As part of the Harlem River Bridges Access Plan, NYC DOT is hosting a third and final round of community workshops in both Manhattan and the Bronx. These workshops will take place over the next several weeks. During these workshops, we will review proposed bridge facility designs and prioritize improvements. DOT would love to have members of the community join us (and spread the word) in helping to shape their community for the short and long term.
Please see the flyer attached, our last series of workshops will be held on the following dates:
