    Any update on pedestrian improvements on the Canal St & Park Row intersection? It has to be one of the most dangerous intersections for pedestrians downtown. I thought I remember hearing that it was under review but I haven’t heard anything for a while.

    The City did a Road Safety Analysis on that stretch of Canal. Recommendations reviewed by the BPAC included a bike lane, curb extensions, and a traffic signal at Park Row. I think funding needs to identified to proceed.
