Statement on the Signing of the Streets Master Plan Bill

“Congratulations to Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson on the Streets Master Plan bill. Regional Plan Association is a proud supporter of this bill because it will bring safer, less polluting, and more affordable transportation to our growing city. This critical piece of legislation mandates construction of 250 protected cycling lanes and 150 protected bus lanes, along with many other necessary street safety improvements, on New York City streets over the next five years. We look forward to working with the NYC Department of Transportation and City Council as implementation proceeds," said Kate Slevin, Senior Vice President, State Programs and Advocacy at Regional Plan Association.
