New Concrete Medians Installed On South Street as Part of ‘Greenway’ Project

Get ready for the South Street Greenway.

Despite the short-run setback of a new roadbed (three months’ worth), real progress is now visible with regard to the South Street Greenway project. The infrastructural implementation that began back in March (or so we thought) – this included flyers explaining imminent fixes – was apparently sidelined by the resurfacing of the highway itself.

Patches of said new asphalt were torn up last month to install several segments of safety barrier. It’s really a collection of medians. And the one at Clinton Street is already fitted for a traffic signal, also a component of the overall Greenway project.

Plans are on the table to beautify the concrete islands, too. The Hester Street Collaborative teamed up with Department of Transportation for the creative effort, and will collectively pitch Community Board 3 tonight to further discuss their artistic vision.
