What’s Up with Prince Street?
You may have noticed the above change to the Prince Street bike lane between Mulberry and Lafayette during your crosstown commute recently and wondered what’s happening. I contacted a source at DOT and the good news is that there is no long-term change in store for this block; the shift to the left is due to the impending construction of a commercial building “which will temporarily close the curbside bike lane.”
DOT will also build a pedestrian walkway, presumably where the green bike lane is right now, so it looks like bikes and cars will share space on just this one block, which is one of the quieter stretches of my morning ride. Expect it to return to normal in about ten months.
