Let DOT Know Your Thoughts About Your Neighborhood's Truck Routes

The online public feedback period ends on June 30.

The city Department of Transportation (DOT) is currently asking for public input as it gets ready to redesign truck routes in all five boroughs. 

As part of Local Law 171, which passed in 2023, the DOT is gathering public feedback to redesign the Truck Route Network with a focus on enhancing safety, increasing visibility, and reducing traffic congestion while taking into consideration of existing freight travel patterns, major truck traffic generators and industry trends, according to the feedback portal website. 

Those who wish to comment on specific routes, issues and problems can access a feedback map and directly type in their opinions. Some options to flag include confusing signage, narrow roadway, difficult truck turns and observed bicyclist and truck conflict. 

There are nearly 600 comments registered so far, and many people have sent in their feedback about Atlantic Avenue in and around downtown Brooklyn and Caton Avenue in Kensington. 

The feedback period ends on June 30. The DOT will then conduct public outreach sessions through the summer and publish a report by September 15, 2024.
