DOT proposes Madison Avenue Bridge improvements

The city's Department of Transportation is proposing improvements to the Bronx side of the Madison Avenue Bridge that would make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists.



More than 300 people were injured crossing the bridge between 2010 and 2014. Community members say their concerns about the corridor include speeding cars and their failure to yield.



A number of residents told News 12 that they don't feel safe using the bridge, which is why they support the DOT's proposal.



Some of the proposed improvements are wider sidewalks for foot traffic and bikers, protective buffers and additional crosswalks.
