Streetsblog NYC: Queens Pol: DOT’s Excuses for Queensboro Bridge Safety Delays Are ‘Garbage’

Queens Council member who has long championed the creation of more pedestrian and cyclist space on the jam-packed Queensboro Bridge said she is outraged at the excuses being peddled by the Department of Transportation for why the agency pushed back by at least a year its timetable for adding a pedestrian-only lane on the span.

Council Member Julie Won, whose district comprises the eastern approaches to the 113-year-old bridge, criticized the agency after participating in a walkthrough with DOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez and staffers from the offices of Council Members Julie Menin (D-Upper East Side) and Selvena Brooks-Powers (D-Queens), who heads the Council’s Transportation Committee.
