Re: Bronx Bus Network Redesign Final Plan Addendum

Posted by William A. Padron on Fri Dec 3 13:12:18 2021, in response to Re: Bronx Bus Network Redesign Final Plan Addendum, posted by Osmosis Jones on Thu Dec 2 22:15:29 2021.

NYC DOT has a policy of not installing speed bumps, which are considerable as to cover an entire width of a street, and where buses and trucks run over.

The agency can instead install speed cushions, where buses and trucks can go over easily, as they have provisions (indents) on the pavement for ease. There are about 50 of them located in the city.

If the #Bx17 runs over those speed bumps, they should not be there though. As I said, the buses would be forced to slow down, but the height of those bumps can hit the bottom sides of them, thus causing some damage underneath those vehicles.
