With tremendous thanks to the many NoHo residents who signed and expressed their opinions regarding the new Lafayette St. Protected Bike Lane – we were granted most of our stipulations and have been promised more thorough consultation in the future. Here’s the CB#2 Resolution.
But, before the ink was even dry, DOT marched into NoHo to scrape the Lafayette Roadbed for new surfacing…which was supposed to be complete by March 24, but of course we are still waiting. The resurfacing-on-hold has disrupted commercial deliveries, of course. Just in – the paving schedule for April 6 week.
Then, we were informed that the Belgian Block on Bond St. between Jones Alley and Lafayette was to be repaired; only catch is that one half of that stretch is a construction site and will remain so till next spring !
We also noticed that the sidewalk and curb replacement on 4th St. between Broadway and Bowery has begun this weekend. No actual work of course, just lots of no parking cones and yellow tape. This does not promise to be speedy, either.
We did manage to send DOT pictures of the Belgian Block condition on Bond St between Lafayette and Bowery, however. This is an exercise we have done in the spring for three years – without any response. If you are interested, you can check out the conditions here.
