This Week in Livable Streets Events

As Summer Streets month continues, this week’s Streetsblog Calendar also includes an event memorializing city workers who have lost their lives while on the job, and an opportunity to help bring safer streets to Queens.

  • Monday: Transportation Alternatives Queens Committee Meeting. Come join the TA Queens Committee and connect with like-minded neighbors as they tackle advocacy issues and plan fun events in
    Queens. Current areas of focus are developing neighborhood bike lane networks,
    establishing a protected bike lane and pedestrian safety measures along
    the entire length of Queens Boulevard, traffic-calming the dangerous
    intersection at Astoria Boulevard and 31st Street, and building TA membership in Queens. 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: Webinar on NYMTC 2009 Draft Congestion Management Process Report. The 2009 Draft CMP Status Report provides a summary description of roadway traffic congestion, including a focus on seven regional performance measures. There are two public review webinars today at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Tribute to Traffic and Sanitation Enforcement Agents Who Have Died in the Line of Duty. Join CWA Local 1182 for a testimonial tribute for Traffic Enforcement
    and Sanitation Enforcement Agents who have died during the last two
    years. Included in this evening of remembrance will be a tribute to
    Traffic Agent Donnette Sanz, who was run down and killed while on a
    traffic assignment August 14, 2008.
  • Saturday: It’s the second week of Summer Streets, and calendar entries now include a link to TA feeder rides from Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Inwood.
