Sixth Avenue Complete Streets

DOT is upgrading the bike lane on Sixth Avenue from West 8th Street and West 33rd Street to a parking protected bike lane to improve safety for all road users. Pedestrian safety islands will shorten crossing distances, making it safer for pedestrain to cross Sixth Avenue. Mixing zones and turn lanes will improve safety at intersections with left turns while maintaining the existing number of moving lanes. Construction along Sixth Avenue began in July. A dedicated bike lane has been painted on Sixth Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets, and will continue to extend north to 33rd Street.
