    Current Conditions

    Currently, Roosevelt Avenue by the Transit Hub / Victor Moore Arcade (between 74th and 75th Street) poses safety concerns because of pedestrians crossing mid-block, bus and livery vehicle activity and darker conditions underneath the elevated structure.

    Proposed crosswalk widening

    Wider crosswalks would better accommodate the large volume of commuters accessing the Transit Hub and Victor Moore Arcade. The proposal calls for widening the crosswalks from 12 feet to 40 feet - more than triple their current width. This improvement would also encourage pedestrians to use the crosswalk instead of crossing mid-block.

    Proposed bus stop shift and installation of shelters

    To accommodate the proposed wider crosswalks, bus stops on Roosevelt Avenue would be shifted towards the middle of the block. New shelters would help discourage pedestrians crossing busy Roosevelt Avenue mid-block.

    The widened crosswalks seem great and like they will help a lot, but is it possible to widen the one on the east side of 75th as well? Maybe it wouldn’t be necessary if the others are wider but it’s very croded at those corners (eastern) too
