Sheridan Expressway decision delayed

The city’s study on whether or not to tear down the Sheridan Expressway in the Bronx to make way for parks and housing has been delayed another year by the Bloomberg administration, the New York Daily News reported. Borough activists want more green spaces in the Bronx, while the New York City Department of Transportation has said closing the expressway will only push traffic onto local roads.

The city began a multi-agency review of the proposal in 2010, and planned to make a decision by this year. Now the administration plans to finish their study in early 2013, the News said.

While activists say the Sheridan, which runs along the Bronx River and connects the Cross Bronx Expressway to the Bruckner Expressway near the Hunts Point area, forms a “toxic triangle” of exhaust fumes, local businesses say trucks that deliver to them rely on the Sheridan. [NYDN]
