Sidewalks must have suffered storm damage, such as from the roots of a fallen tree, in order to qualify for free repair by the City of New York.

New York City’s Department of Transportation (DOT) is tasked with keeping the 12,750 miles of city sidewalks safe for pedestrians. This undertaking requires the participation of home, building and business owners as well as city agencies.

Message from 70th Precinct Regarding Bicycle Accidents and Traffic Enforcement

Deputy Inspector Ralph Monteforte, Commanding Officer of the 70th Precinct, sent this notice to CB14 regarding bicycle accidents and traffic enforcement:

Bicycle accidents and bicyclist injuries have seen a dramatic increase in the past year. Please be advised that in an effort to reduce these types of accidents, the 70th Precinct will be holding bicyclists more accountable for their actions by issuing traffic violations. Bicyclists must adhere to many of the same rules of the road as motorists do. For example, stopping at red lights, obeying traffic devices, etc.  In addition, to reduce serious injuries to bicyclists, the 70th Precinct will issue violations to bicyclists who utilize headphones while riding a bicycle, and do not utilize a bicycle lane when it is available. It is the 70th Precinct’s mission to keep the roadways safe for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists.  Thank you for your compliance.

Deputy Inspector Ralph Monteforte
70th Precinct Commanding Officer

Rehabilitation of Ocean Avenue Bridge Between Avenue H & Avenue I

On or about January 3, 2011, the New York City Department of Transportation Division of Bridges will begin the rehabilitation of the Ocean Avenue Bridge over the Long Island Rail Road between Avenues H and I.

The scope of work includes the demolition of a building under the bridge; removal and reconstruction of concrete parapets, concrete deck slab and concrete encased steel stringers, utilities, curb and sidewalk at both sides of the bridge; repair of the spalled concrete underdeck and resurfacing of the existing asphalt pavement. Graffiti will be removed and parapets painted.

The contractor will work on only one side of the bridge at a time. On the side under construction, traffic will be reduced to one 11-foot travel lane with a 5-foot protected pedestrian walkway. The opposite side will continue to have two moving lanes with one parking lane and sidewalk. The scheduled completion date is the fall of 2011.

Work will be conducted from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
