Protected Bike Lane on Broadway / Via protegida para bicicletas en Broadway

Broadway is a Vision Zero "Priority Corridor"- one of the most dangerous streets in Queens. In 2016, we were reminded of this when Antonio Flores was killed as he biked down the street.

Everyday that Broadway is not changed, we are putting residents at risk. But we can do something about it.

By adding a protected bike lane and pedestrian safety improvements, we can make this street safer and increase access to several small business districts along the corridor. Small business owners on Broadway thrive primarily on foot traffic and protected bike lanes are shown to increase business revenues where they are installed.

A protected bike lane on Broadway would also be an excellent expansion to the bike network in Queens - giving safe access from the protected bike lane on Vernon Boulevard in Astoria all the way down to the Queens Boulevard protected bike lane in Elmhurst.

Broadway es un “Corredor Prioritario” de Visión Cero – una calle en la cual la gente esta a mayor riesgo de heridas o muerte, que no ha sido mejorada completamente. En el 2016, esto fue evidente con la muerte de Antonio Flores, después de que fue golpeado por un auto en esta calle. Al aumentar una via protegida para bicicletas y mejoramientos para los peatones, podemos hacer que esta calle sirva mejor a la gente viajando dentro de la vecindad y de Queens. Al mismo tiempo, Broadway sería una excelente expansión de la creciente red de ciclovías en Queens.
