Green Light for Midtown is a major initiative in the City's efforts to improve mobility and safety. NYCDOT began implementation in late May 2009, following Mayor Bloomberg's announcement of the project in February 2009. The work created new pedestrian areas on Broadway in Times Square (47th to 42nd Streets) and Herald Square (35th to 33rd Streets). Extensive safety improvements were also made along the Broadway corridor between Columbus Circle and Madison Square. An initial feasibility analysis suggested the project would improve mobility in midtown Manhattan and improve safety along Broadway. NYCDOT collected extensive data during implementation and found this to be true. Based on these findings, Mayor Bloomberg has decided to make these changes permanent. NYCDOT will begin a capital project to design and build the plazas and corridor treatments with permanent, high quality materials. For a full report visit: www.nyc.gov/dot.
