New York, which has championed a number of innovative transportation projects, including pedestrian-free sections of Broadway and bike lanes between the curb and street parking on Ninth Avenue, has outlined possible changes on First and Second Avenues. They include protected bike lanes and pedestrian refuge islands. On most of the corridor, the plan calls for bike lanes along the left curb, protected by a floating parking lane.

Read the preliminary plan from the First Avenue / Second Avenue Select Bus Service Community Advisory Committee.
