Union Square's new pedestrian plaza is set to officially become ready for use Wednesday.

The space is on Broadway between 17th and 18th streets, just above Union Square Park.

Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Kahn, along with community and business leaders, will announce the project's completion.

The hope is to make Union Square Park safer and more accessible and inviting.
