In 2019 the New York City Council passed a law requiring the Department of Transportation (DOT) to come out with and implement a transportation masterplan every five years beginning in 2021. DOT aims to have the plan completed in December and is beginning the New York City Streets Plan currently.
Public outreach begins with the launch of the New York City Streets Plan online survey
