Bikers beware

Dear Editor:

I am writing to alert bikers of the deadly danger upon approaching the Briarwood boondoggle of the Kew Gardens Interchange Project on Queens Boulevard, either going east towards the south side of the Van Wyck Expressway with a forked dead man's curve, or going west along a narrow two-lane road.

Also, there are no bike lanes in either direction along Queens Boulevard and no sidewalk on the south side as well. The only safe strip from vehicular traffic is the pedestrian sidewalk on the north side, which would constitute a traffic violation for biking on the sidewalk.

The effect of this present construction is essentially to ban all bicycles from access through Queens Boulevard from Main Street to Hoover Avenue.

I suggest that the DOT post signs in both directions that read “Briarwood Bikes Beware! Dead Man's Curve Ahead.”
