STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 

Pursuant to §§ 1043 and 2903 (a) of the New York City Charter, the Commissioner of Transportation is authorized to promulgate rules regarding the conduct of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the streets, squares, avenues, highways and parkways of the City as may be necessary.

 

Background

 

Based upon truck origin-destination data, recommendations from a truck study conducted in 2007 and truck route changes requested from the local industrial and trucking community, the Department of Transportation proposes to amend provisions of Title 34, Section 4-13 of the Rules of the City of New York in order to establish a more consistent designation of truck routes in the Borough of Brooklyn. Specifically, the proposed rule:

·       Changes the designation of: Gardner Avenue, Harrison Avenue, Johnson Avenue, Knickerbocker Avenue, Meadow Street, Morgan Avenue, Varick Avenue, and parts of Union Avenue and York Street to Local Truck Routes.

·       Dedesignates Lorimer Street, Wallabout Street and part of York Street as Local Truck Routes.

·       Clarifies the local truck route description for York Street, which states that the route runs along York Street from Navy to Cadman Plaza West. As York Street does not connect with Cadman Plaza West, this rule must be changed to state “Adams Street to Front Street”, as Front Street connects to Cadman Plaza.
