existing conditions

planned configuration
As we reported in an earlier post, a new protected bicycle lane was proposed for Lafayette Street/Fourth Avenue from Spring Street to 12th Street, and was unanimously approved by Community Board 2. Implementation begins in mid-April.

In order to enhance safety and mobility DOT will be making the following
improvements on Lafayette Street between Spring and 14th Street:
• A parking-protected bicycle path will be installed from Prince to 12th Street
• Bicycle lanes will be installed from 12th to 14th Streets
• Left-turn lanes will be installed at intersections, mitigating left-turn conflicts
• Planted concrete pedestrian refuge islands will be built to shorten crossing distances, improve safety and green the corridor
