Upper Manhattan advocates have been asking DOT for a protected bike lane on Dyckman Street for nearly a decade. But when the agency finally came up with a plan to improve safety on Dyckman earlier this year, the Community Board 12 transportation committee declined to vote on it and insisted that DOT hold more meetings regarding the proposal. Now, nearly six months later, DOT returns to the transportation committee tonight to review the project. If you want a safer crosstown bike connection for Inwood, it’s an important opportunity to tell CB 12 the project should move forward.
