DUMBO/Vinegar Hill Street & Plaza Reconstruction

NYC DOT is working with DDC, the DUMBO Improvement District, and the communities of DUMBO and Vinegar Hill to develop a design for a $20 million capital project to reconstruct cobble roadways and subsurface utilities on multiple blocks of DUMBO and Vinegar Hill and build out Pearl Plaza, a successful public space that NYC DOT and DUMBO Improvement District implemented in 2007 using temporary materials. The streets in the project area consist of granite cobbles, generally in poor condition, with some sections of asphalt. These conditions impede bicycles, are difficult for pedestrians and do not meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) guidelines. At the same time, community members feel strongly about preserving the character of the neighborhood to the greatest extent possible. NYC DOT is committed to a design that restores all streets with granite cobble in a way that makes these streets available for all users, including cyclists. For the Pearl Plaza, the goal is to create a design responsive to community desires, which incorporates seating and landscape elements in a manner that is consistent with the context, and that provides maximum flexibility for programming. The plaza design will connect Pearl Plaza to an adjacent public space under the Manhattan Bridge Arch. This design project includes extensive community outreach, with three public workshops held as of March, 2013. Following a vigorous discussion about the cobble roadway design at a workshop in January, 2013, the designers incorporated neighborhood feedback and presented revised concepts at a workshop on March 20th. The project team then built granite cobble mock-ups which were viewed by approximately 50-60 members of the public. Based on public input, a presentation was made to the Community Board 2 executive board, which endorsed the project on July 22, 2013. The project design will be submitted and presented to the Landmarks Preservation Commission in September 2013

In this largely residential neighborhood wide streets with low traffic volumes encourage speeding; as a result, there have been almost 80 injuries from 2013 to 2017. In order to address safety issues for school-aged pedestrians in this area School Safety proposes to narrow and calm Montgomery Street by replacing the existing bike lanes with protected bike lanes, and by adding safety treatments at the intersections. In addition, DOT proposes to normalize the irregular intersections of Grand Street and Madison Street, Grand Street and East Broadway, and Grand Street and Henry Street by adding painted curb extensions and shortening crosswalks. Lastly, School Safety would convert East Broadway to one way eastbound operation between Montgomery Street and Grand Street.

This proposal aims to calm traffic, provide safer, shorter pedestrian crossings, slow vehicle turns, and improve bus stop accessibility.

Connecting Communities: A Vision for the Harlem River Bridges

Beginning in the summer of 2015, the New York City Department of Transportation's Office of Bicycle and Pedestrian Programs has led a community-driven planning process to increase pedestrian and bicycle safety and mobility between Manhattan and the Bronx across the Harlem River bridges. Through workshops, surveys, and mobile outreach, combined with technical analysis, NYC DOT has identified feasible, potential transportation improvements to create a continuous cross-borough user experience, incorporating bridge paths, on-street approaches, wayfinding and lighting.
