NEW YORK CITY — The Department of Transportation released its 2016 NYC Bike Map Monday that features nearly 70 miles of new and upgraded lanes, including 15 miles of protected bike lanes expected to open this year.

The map is meant to be used as a guide to New York City cyclists, with solid lines denoting ready routes.

Dotted lines, which denote lanes expected to be completed later this year, are also scattered across the five boroughs. Here's a look at the new lanes the DOT says cyclists can expect for 2016:

► Manhattan will get a protected bike lane for Amsterdam Avenue from 72nd Street to 110th Street on the Upper West Side. Although the route does not appear on the map, the Department of Transportation confirmed to DNAinfo New York in a statement that it will be built this summer.

► Also in Manhattan, a new project will connect East 105 Street to East 65th Street along Second Avenue.

► In Queens, the city will develop bike lanes to connect the Astoria waterfront to the Flushing Bay Promenade through Woodside and East Elmhurst.

► In Brooklyn, a new bike lane over the Pulaski Bridge will connect Greenpoint to Long Island City in Queens.

► The Bronx will get a new lanes on Bruckner Boulevard and in Van Cortlandt Park.  

► Staten Island will see 3 miles of new protected lanes on Springville Greenway along the eastern border of Freshkills Park.

The map does not include the controversial plan to put bike lanes on six one-way streets on the Upper East Side, which the Department of Transportation has tried to get neighbor support for at several Community Board 8 meetings.

The map has also come under criticism for incorrectly listing when cars are permitted in along Central Park's East Drive. No cars are allowed north of East 72nd Street along the East Drive under a rule that went into effect on June 29, 2015.

New York City’s network of bike lanes reached 1,000 miles in 2015, when the two-way bike lane was completed on Clinton Street in the Lower East Side, according to the Department of Transportation.
