These Streets are Made for Walkin'

Streetsblog is reporting that the very popular shopping area in Melrose, known as the Hub, is set to become one of the most walkable commercial areas in the Bronx.
The DOT is planning to simplify the extremely complex traffic patterns that currently govern the flow of vehicles and people at the Hub. The plans are for sidewalk extensions, blocks long pedestrian plazas, and even portions of asphalt dedicated to bikers. The heart of the Hub is the intersection 149th St., Willis Ave., Third Ave., and Melrose Ave.

In coordination with DOT, the Transit authority is said to have agreed to re-route some buses to accommodate this move toward a more pedestrian-friendly Hub.
