Operation Hazard ID Delivers Smooth Cycling

Read the latest news about this issue.

Cheers to the DOT's Scott Roveto, Director of Manhattan Street Maintenance. Roveto's office repaired 75 cycle-threatening street hazards whose locations were provided by T.A.'s Operation Hazard ID. He also asked the Department of Environmental Protection and Con Edison to tend to an equal number of dangerous grates, submerged manholes and other nasty street obstacles. Mr. Roveto should be congratulated for his comprehensive and well-organized reports and for helping Operation Hazard ID establish a system for reporting hazards. The goal of Operation Hazard ID is to inspect the highly traveled central business district for potholes and other dangerous street conditions and have them fixed.

T.A. intends to keep the program running as a permanent part of our bicycle advocacy, and we continue to need volunteer surveyors. Our special thanks go to surveyor Stuart Desser and 1997-98 T.A. intern Nigel Hall.

Please contact T.A. if you can help us survey.
