RESIDENTS SAY NO TO 14th ST. VEHICLE BAN and 13TH ST. BIKEWAY

 As part of the upcoming L train shutdown, the DOT/MTA wants to ban all cars and trucks on 14th Street. Their plan, based on flawed data, will create extreme and unnecessary hardships on neighborhood residents & businesses by:

  • Diverting cars and trucks to our already congested side streets & increasing our traffic by at least 50%+
  • Significantly limiting building access to 14th Street residents - especially impacting the disabled, elderly and those with young children.
  • Severely impeding police cars, fire trucks and ambulances from reaching their destinations
  • Increasing air and noise pollution, giving rise to respiratory and other health issues for tens of thousands of residents

In addition, DOT Commissioner Trottenberg proposes a non-conforming, two-way bikeway on 13th Street.  Her add-on proposal is irrelevant to the L train repairs & more importantly, will create dangerous conditions for pedestrians & cyclists.

  • DOT projects 2,000-5,000 cyclists on 13th Street DAILY
  • DOT projects, at the same time, a 50%+ increase in cars and trucks on 13th Street

We want the DOT/MTA to find a temporary solution to a temporary problem, one that is EQUALLY fair to residents, businesses and commuters.
