Safety improvements are coming to Shore Front Parkway. The NYC Department of Transportation has announced that improvements between Beach 77th and Beach 81st are set to begin this month.
According to the DOT, their plan will enhance pedestrian safety, improve accessibility, add pedestrian crossings and improve connections.
The plan, being implemented throughout April, will add connections across Shore Front from Beach 77th to Beach 81st Streets. The median and curb at Beach 77th will be extended to shorten pedestrian crossings. The median cut-through at Beach 81st will be moved to align with and standardize the intersection. And finally, pedestrian refuge islands will be built between the eastbound lane and bike lane at both intersections.
