BatteryPark.TV exclusively learned that, after our complaint to the BPCA about that agency stalling the planned City DOT street safety measures, the City DOT sent out a traffic engineer to study the patterns of West Thames Street. The engineer spent three days in a car equipped with radar, lasers, counters, etc. The engineer said, “This street needs a traffic light.”.

The June 3rd CB1 will discuss the street issues. the DOT will present their plan.

6/3 Battery Park City Committee – 6:00 PM
Location:   Battery Park City Library 175 North End Avenue
1) Update and response to BPC Committee Report – Shari Hyman, President, Battery Park City Authority
2) Pending traffic and transportation issues in BPC – Update by NYC Department of Transportation, Traffic Operations Division

BPCA refuses to explain why it told DOT to cancel street safety measures

    Awesome work! Now we just need to figure out why the recommended traffic improvements seem to have been shelved?! Although it pains me to say it, it certainly fits into Comrade DiBlasio’s “vision zero” plan, so not sure why BPC would see any political value in delaying, even if it was a recco of the previous administration…

    DOT is not to blame. This is all due to the “spit on the people” attitude of the parasites who run BPCA solely as a political machine for Albany

    Perhaps I shamed Mehiel into doing the right thing. Let’s see.
