Jean Chambers was hit Thursday afternoon at 95th Street and West End Avenue when a 2004 Ford Expedition made a left turn.
Under the plan, first introduced in September 2013, the DOT will reduce lanes and create medians along Morningside Avenue between 116th and 126th streets in an attempt to reduce traffic speeds and improve safety for pedestrians.
The bus lanes were supposed to be put in use this month, but according to the DOT, work was delayed because recent cold weather made it impossible to apply the paint and other markings needed to establish dedicated bus lanes.
A 24th Precinct police officer who was seriously injured in a car accident while on duty in 2006 has been granted the entirety of the $11,263,944 he was initially awarded by the New York Supreme Court for damages from the city, according to court records.

The project, stretching along 125th Street from Old Broadway to the Hudson River, includes lights under the 12th Avenue and 1 train viaducts, expanded sidewalks, pedestrian seating, improved streetlights, and trees.
Manhattan residents proposed solutions ranging from better enforcement of red-light turns to educating cyclists at Wednesday's town hall.
