N.Y. to require streets friendly to cyclists, walkers

State and local transportation agencies will be required to consider street designs that are friendly to pedestrians and cyclists as well as to motorists, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Cuomo plans to sign legislation to mandate the consideration for state Department of Transportation projects, and for local and county projects receiving both state and federal funding and overseen by the DOT.
 
“New York’s roadways should safely accommodate all pedestrians, motorists and cyclists, and this legislation will help communities across the state achieve this objective,” Cuomo said in a statement.

The legislation was sponsored Assemblyman David Gantt, D-Rochester, and Sen. Charles Fuschillo Jr., R-Long Island.

“With this legislation, future state and local transportation projects will be planned in a way that is more mindful of all users of our roadways,” Gantt said in the statement.
