Policy Statement Concerning the George Washington Bridge

Adopted by the Board of Directors June 7, 2016

Resolvedthat the New York Cycle Club (i) commends the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for its commitment to bicycling and walking throughout the region; and (ii) welcomes and applauds the proposed improvements to the George Washington Bridge bicycle/pedestrian paths announced by the Port Authority in March, 2014; and (iii) notes with satisfaction that at least one of the paths will remain open at all times throughout the impending recabling project; and (iv) respectfully urges the Port Authority to seize the opportunity afforded by the recabling to widen the paths on the GWB main span to comply with national standards, dedicate a lane on the roadway for cyclists, or make other comparable provision for cyclists on the main span so as to support the continued growth of bicycling and pedestrian traffic well into the coming decades.
