NYCDOT presented the operational project evaluation and capital next phases to the CB6 Transportation Committee on 4/16/15, and the capital next phases presentation to the CB7 Transportation Committee on 6/2/15. Both transportation committees endorsed the multi-phase capital project which proposes to build out the operational redesign of the Avenue — implemented between 15th-65th St in 2012, and between Atlantic Ave and 15th St in 2013 — in concrete with planters raised above the subway tunnel, which include raising the subway vents as an anti-flood mitigation.
Phase I of the Vision Zero Priority Corridor Great Streets capital project will be 8th-18th St and 33rd to 52nd St. Phase II will be 18th to 33rd St and 52nd to 60th St. DOT is seeking additional funds to build Atlantic-8th St and 60th St to 65th St.
