Central Park getting safer for cyclists, pedestrians
NEW YORK (WABC) -- New York City is moving to make Central Park safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
The transportation department wants to widen lanes.
Under the plan, pedestrian lanes will go from 7 feet across to 14 feet.
Bike lanes will grow to between 9 and 11 feet.
To make room on the lower loop, one car lane will be removed.
Work could start later this month.
