Get ready for the D.O.T. "sustainable streets"...just in time...for 2030?
I hate to be the ultimate cynic, but its really hard to get excited about the D.O.T's new plans which are supposed to be finished by 2030. Wow, I'll be 60 years and in desperate need of bike lanes if not a walker. At least they are doing something over there in the shadow of the congestion pricing defeat.
Just days before bike month the Department of Transportation has unveiled their 72 page plan on how to make the streets safer and create more infrastructure for bikes and public transportation.
Here is the flashy graphic filled plan for, "Sustainable Streets"
and here is a video from streetfilms of Janette Sadik-Kahn, NYC DOT Commissioner, annoucing the plan at the Municipal Art Society.
Here is Brian Lehrer having a love in with Paul Steeley White, executive director Transportation Alternative, on Wednesday's show, talking about the new sustainable streets plan.
To be fair, the D.O.T. is taking an aggressive role on making positive sustainable changes to NYC for pedestrians and bikers. Hopefully the NYPD will cooperate.
