The NYS State Dept. of Transportation has installed a permanent new security gate in the Chelsea. This security control will be located in the planted buffer area between the bikeway and roadway and will allow for the removal of some of the temporary concrete barriers previously placed on the bikeway near that location. Installation will take place at night to minimize disturbance to cyclists and pedestrians. Throughout the summer, look for the installation of other permanent security features to be installed along the bikeway corridor. As this occurs, the number of temporary concrete barriers will be reduced.
Due to heightened security measures, take extra precautions when riding on the bikeway. The concrete barriers are in place are for your safety but make certain areas of the bikeway more narrow than in the past. Follow the rules of the road and stay in your lane.
Use common sense, plan accordingly, and adjust your route when necessary. Be mindful of Park staff working on the bikeway.
Please contact us at 212 242-6427 to report issues, and always call 911 in an emergency.
