(The People's Roadmap Moderator) #1

Physical Infrastructure emerged as an Accessible Infrastructure topic area at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Manhattan Edition (December 7, 2017). Use this thread to continue that discussion!

Community thoughts about Current State

  • Infrastructure is not a public utility, but it’s more than just “pipes” (e.g. search placement reviews, etc.) e.g. net neutrality does not fix it all
  • Jammed up conduits
  • Lack of fiber
  • Infrastructure doesn’t guide/direct the usage of it
  • Infrastructure companies can choose to drop/cut-off customers for whatever reasons they want

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • City-owned fiber
  • Much infrastructure is in flood prone areas. Plan!
  • Map dark fiber

Physical Infrastructure emerged as an Accessible Infrastructure topic area at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Queens Edition (November 9, 2017):

Community thoughts about Current State

  • Complete bike network across the 5 boros
  • Mapping apps
  • Trend: construction city - sidewalks are blocked, bike lanes compromised
  • Listing of transit stations with realtime accessible status
  • Ride sharing apps

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • Super blocks that prioritize pedestrians and bikes
  • A dataset that highlights sidewalks and curb cut height to road bed depth
  • Map layer with elevation, sidewalk cuts, stairs
  • Platform to connect riders and providers
