DOT Completes Reduced Alternate Side Parking Regulation Pilot Program In Bronx Community District 8 To Simplify Parking And Reduce Vehicle Trips
Pilot program reduced Alternate Side Parking Regulations from twice a week to once a week
New, reduced Alternate Side Parking Regulations will take effect in parts of Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge Heights and Van Cortlandt Village starting Monday, March 22
As part of the City's ongoing effort to simplify parking for residents and reduce vehicle trips in the city, the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the completion of a pilot program to reduce Street Cleaning/Alternate Side Parking (ASP) Regulations in Bronx Community District 8. The pilot program reduces ASP Regulations from twice a week to once a week. The pilot began in 2008 in Brooklyn's Community District 6 and was later extended to Brooklyn's Community District 2. The program was expanded to include Bronx Community District 8, where it began on Oct. 28, 2009.
The second and final phase of the pilot program in Bronx Community District 8 is now complete, with new signs installed in parts of the Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge Heights and Van Cortlandt Village sections of Bronx Community District 8 displaying new, reduced regulations. Approximately 3,600 ASP signs were changed throughout the district during both phases of the pilot program, reducing residential street cleaning parking restrictions from twice a week to just once a week to ease parking for local residents. In other cases, only the time of day of the street-cleaning regulation was changed. The newly posted regulations were established by the Department of Sanitation at the request of Community Board 8 and will be enforceable starting on Monday, March 22, giving residents two weeks to adjust to the new rules.
