New Truck Delivery Windows To Help Alleviate Congestion on Church Avenue

Posted on: www.cb14brooklyn.com

The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) announced plans to implement a new truck delivery “window” along Brooklyn’s Church Avenue from East 16th to East 21st streets to ease congestion along the busy commercial corridor, improve parking opportunities for all motorists and enhance deliveries for the many businesses in the area.

After working with CB14 and the Church Avenue Business Improvement District, DOT designed the plan to address the local community’s concerns about chronic traffic congestion on Church Avenue.

The new parking regulations, set to begin on January 18, 2011, designate 40 metered spaces for weekday truck deliveries from 7 a.m. – noon, freeing up the one-hour metered parking spaces in the afternoons for other motorists. Metered parking for passenger vehicles will continue to be available all day at 90 meters on Church Avenue and on side streets. By consolidating freight deliveries to morning hours, the initiative optimizes the use of curb space by encouraging deliveries to be made earlier in the day, reduces double parking and curb idling and supports the city’s economy by making it easier for business patrons to park. For businesses that need later deliveries, truck loading and unloading will be available until 3 p.m. on weekdays on Church Avenue between East 18th and 19th streets.
