Streetsblog NYC: Queensboro Bridge Bike Boom Continues, But DOT Still Prioritizes Car Drivers Over

The bike boom shouldn’t come with a crash.

The city is doubling down on its delay at giving more space to cyclists and pedestrians on the Queensboro Bridge, even as the agency’s own data show that the span had the highest annual increase in bike traffic.

The agency has argued that giving pedestrians what they’ve long been promised — full possession of the bridge’s South Outer Roadway so that walkers would no longer have to share the northernmost lane on the span — would trigger too much congestion for drivers during the ongoing construction on car lanes on the upper deck.
