Residents attended a meeting on 125th street to hear about proposed DOT changes Thursday night coming to their neighborhood.

Here’s some of what DOT is proposing for 125th street:
-Dedicated lane for buses and right turning cars between Lenox avenue and second avenue.
-truck loading zones in selected locations from 8AM to 11AM.
– select bus stops for the M60
– pay on street fare machines

Senator bill Perkins says residents are confused about these proposed changes will look like.

There are problems along 125th street. According to the DOT, buses are stopped over 60 percent of the time.
Theres heavy double parking and a lack of truck loading zones make it difficult for the deliveries.

While the DOT wants to upgrade, it’s unnerving  to residents who worry select bus service will mean their bus stops could be eliminated.
