Subway Sidewalk Interface
Technical Memorandum V Recommendations - Queens Edition, 2005

Subway Sidewalk Interface - QueensThe Subway-Sidewalk Interface Project is a joint project sponsored by the New York City Department of City Planning (NYCDCP) and the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT). The project is funded through a matching city-federal grant under the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program.

Pedestrian circulation improvements linked to mass transit access offer the opportunity to reduce vehicular congestion and improve air quality. The Subway-Sidewalk Interface Project focuses on the areas where the subways meet the street, the nexus of the surface and subsurface circulation systems. The project aims to improve pedestrian and vehicular circulation around the entrances to subway stations in order to encourage mass transit use. The project will implement improvements that relieve congestion and improve security and safety. The type of improvements that may be implemented include signage, lighting, signal timing adjustments, pavement markings, corner clearances, and curb line changes where necessary. Thirty sites throughout the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens have been selected.
