AMNY: City punts fix for ‘treacherous’ Queensboro Bridge bike and pedestrian path by another year

Cyclists and pedestrians will have to fend for space for a year longer than expected on the Ed Koch-Queensboro Bridge’s dangerously-tight shared path because the city decided to postpone giving walkers their own lane until the end of next year.

The bridge’s south outer roadway was supposed to be dedicated to foot traffic by late 2022, but the Department of Transportation pushed that deadline back to December 2023, when the agency wraps up a 20-month construction project on the upper deck of the span, according to a notice DOT sent to local stakeholders Thursday morning.

Currently, cyclists and pedestrians have to share the notoriously-narrow northern outer roadway, while vehicle traffic takes up nine lanes across two levels of the bridge.
