Over the past week, the NYC Department of Transportation added new bike lanes to 222nd Street. The lanes extend from the Bronx River Greenway at Shoelace Park to Co-Op City. The project includes new left turn lanes, and a reduction in travel lanes. More information about the project at our earlier article.
