Major Greenway Expansion Planned for Outer Boroughs

Further efforts by Mayor Eric Adams as part of the administration’s “goal to enhance protected bike infrastructure and promote safer, greener transportation options” in the outer boroughs includes recently revealed plans for a “substantial greenway expansion totaling over 40 miles across five distinct corridors in the outer boroughs. The project that is a collaborative initiative between New York City’s Department of Transportation, the Parks and Recreation Department, and the Economic Development Corporation will be funded by the “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law through the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity RAISE) grant.” Over the coming years, the planning and implementation for the greenway paths will be conducted, with work on the Harlem River Greenway in the Bronx already in progress.
