Good idea?

https://www.brooklynpaper.com/truck-...-third-avenue/

The mayor is looking to turn Bay Ridge’s Third Avenue into a truck route, which would divert big rigs away from other nearby streets and funnel them to the nabe’s commercial corridor.

“Rebuilding a cleaner, fairer, and greener city means rethinking the way trucks move through our streets. As more goods than ever flow through our city, it’s time for a smart, thoughtful freight management approach that keeps our communities safe and livable,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio on May 13 during “Streets Week.”

The route — which would run from 65th Street to 86th Street — comes as part of Hizzoner’s Delivering New York plan to optimize the city’s freight network, which he claims will benefit residential corridors throughout New York City.

“’Delivering New York’ charts a path toward a future with fewer and smaller trucks, which will ease congestion, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and protect our infrastructure.”

When officially transformed, the route will be the southern Brooklyn neighborhood’s first “local” truck route that runs north-and-south, as its two others — on 65th and 86th streets — run east to west. The plan also includes additional local truck routes nearby on Second Avenue from 39th to 58th Street, as well as along New Utrecht Avenue in Dyker Heights.

Isn't 4th Avenue in Bay Ridge a Truck route?

Yeah, I would think 4th Avenue would be more suited for trucks from a size perspective, but it's also pretty much residential from south of 69th up to 85th, so that may be why they want to do the mostly commercial 3rd Ave. instead.

4th Ave is a truck route? Really? 3rd Ave totally makes more sense. It's so much more industrial. And fewer double-parked cars, too.

You're thinking about Sunset Park, not Bay Ridge.

Is this a joke? 3rd Ave is one lane each way. With all the small businesses and restaurants and bars, double parking is a HUGE problem already. Whoever drafted this proposal must have never been to Bay Ridge.

I had to do a double-take on this as I know that 3rd Avenue closer to Downtown Brooklyn is pretty much already a truck route. But then I realized that this is talking about 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge. Yeah, that doesn't seem like a wise idea.

Yep, it only makes sense in Sunset Park, not BR where there are stores and tons of pedestrians the entire length of the avenue. That avenue isn't very wide either. 4th avenue in BR has two lanes each way.

2nd ave in sunset is already a truck route.
3rd in bay ridge is already car congested already, the last thing it needs is trucks.
who sits behind these desks and thinks up these bright ideas.


yes, lets plant trees here, there are only huge trucks making deliveries 5 days a week, lets plant some trees to make it more difficult for the truck drivers to back thier trucks into the warehouses.


who thinks up this chytte.


lets take away many parking spaces in this industrial area of sunset and place citibikes here, they have never been used,
again, who thinks up this chyeet
