Traffic Calming on 21st Street

21st Street is a popular commercial corridor and trucking route that lacks critical pedestrian and bicycle safety measures. The wide street encourages cars and trucks to speed through the densely-populated neighborhoods of Long Island City and Astoria.

Join Transportation Alternatives and our network of 100,000 New Yorkers committed to safe and complete streets in New York City. Sign this petition for traffic calming, pedestrian safety improvements and a protected bike lane on 21st Street.

----------------------------

We support the complete redesign of 21st Street under "Complete Street" principles. 

The current design of 21st Street encourages speeding and makes the street an uninviting and unsafe place to live, work and shop. We must ensure the safety of our neighbors who use 21st Street everyday. We can promote  bicycling, walking and public transit use on 21st Street by redesigning the street to emphasize those alternatives to the car. To do so, we call on you to install traffic calming, pedestrian safety improvements and a protected bike lane on 21st Street.

This redesign will:

  • Reduce traffic crashes and injuries
  • Give people access to more transportation
  • Improve local business
  • Beautify the streetscape and make our neighborhood vibrant and inviting

Thank you and I look forward to hearing your response!
