Queens Chronicle: Bike lanes coming to Sunnyside/Woodside
The Department of Transportation will be rolling out miles of bikes lanes in Sunnyside and Woodside during the next four years, citing a boom in bicycle traffic, said DOT bicycle program Director Hayes Lord.
Bicycle lanes have started to pop up around the neighborhood. In 2007 there were only 1.45 miles of bikes lanes in Community Board 2’s district and now there are 13 miles.
In the next 12 months residents will see nine miles more of bike lanes on 11th Street, Skillman Avenue, 47th Avenue and 39th Street. Community members had requested lanes on Queens Boulevard, but because of the high volume, the DOT “didn’t feel comfortable” with that location, Lord explained.
