The Department of Transportation began the implementation of its four-pronged plan two weeks ago in an effort to enhance safety in the intersection of Delancey and Pitt Streets. Community Board 3 had provided its approval back in July.
The most significant safety improvement was installation of the concrete median island and an addition pair of stop sign. Floating there by its lonesome, its purpose is to create a fork to funnel traffic, shorten the crossing distance, and alert pedestrians to the oncoming cars. Components detailed:
- All-way stop sign control.
- Painting crosswalks on the east and west legs of the intersection.
- Clarify the lanes for westbound cars versus those turning right onto Pitt Street,
Anyone frequenting this area in the past knows that westbound traffic darts from the FDR like a drag race, so these updates are definitely a step forward.
