After a seven-year closure and a $42 million renovation, the scenic roadway can now be used by cyclists and pedestrians.

A spokesman for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, which owns the dam, says that the road, also known as West Westlake Drive will still be off limits to vehicles due to security reasons.
