RED HOOK — An estimated $5.2 million project could improve street safety and offer a sustainable way to manage stormwater on two Red Hook streets, according to the Department of Transportation.
The DOT is proposing a capital improvement project for Ferris Street between King and Van Dyke streets and Beard Street between Otsego and Conover streets in the neighborhood near Valentino Pier.
The project, which is still in its preliminary design stages, would increase bicycle and pedestrian safety along the corridors as well as "improve the public realm," according to the DOT and Community Board 6.
It will also create "sustainable elements to capture stormwater" along segments of Ferris and Beard streets in the neighborhood, CB6's agenda shows.
City officials will present and discuss the project to Community Board 6's transportation committee at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 at the 76th Precinct, located at 191 Union St.
