The Columbus Highway in Pictures

By on Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 at 11:30 am

While the city maintains that the Columbus expansion project is nothing more than a “streetscape improvement”, the project requires removing existing curb extensions to make way for the minimum 9 foot wide travel lanes being added. What this means, explained in pictures:

Monmouth Street and Columbus Drive

Removing the curb extension at Monmouth street to convert parking into a travel lane also widens the distance between curbs– making pedestrian crossings more treacherous.

Varick Street and Columbus

The Same thing is to happen at Varick Street.

Columbus Drive at Rush Hour.

Say goodbye to all that sweet residential parking.
