Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer will be hosting a town hall meeting with the Department of Transportation (DOT) on Tuesday, Dec. 19, on plans to redesign 43rd and Skillman Avenues.

According to the DOT, during a five-year period, there have been 341 injuries along the two avenues and from 2010 through 2014, 15 people have been killed or seriously injured.

The DOT’s plan includes adding protected bike lanes, pedestrian islands and increased visibility of the road’s crosswalks. The plan would also reconfigure the roadways to include a bike lane, two parking lanes and two traffic lanes. Click here for an in-depth look at the DOT’s plans.

In order to make these changes, 118 parking spots on both streets would be lost to the pedestrian islands and right turn lanes.

The session takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Sunnyside Community Services, located at 43-31 39th St. Those who are interested in attending the meeting should RSVP to jbernativicz@council.nyc.gov. The meeting is sponsored by Van Bramer and Community Board 2.
