Important Meeting for Brooklyn Cyclists

On Wednesday, June 14, 6pm, come to Brooklyn Community Board 2’s Transportation Committee meeting to learn about, and comment on, the NYC Department of Transportation’s new plan to install new bike lanes, paths and routes in Fort Greene and Prospect Heights.

The plan calls for a new:
  • Eastbound bike lane on Willoughby Street between Fort Greene Park and Myrtle Avenue in Bushwick
  • Northbound bike lane on Carlton Avenue between Flatbush and Flushing Avenues.
  • Southbound bike lane/route on Cumberland Street between Flushing Avenue and Atlantic Avenue.
  • Traffic calming on Carlton Avenue between Park and Myrtle Avenues.
  • Southbound "reverse-flow" protected bike lane on Carlton Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Streets

Details of the plan can be found in the DOT’s press release.

These DOT improvements are commonsense, and input from community members and people who regularly bike on these streets and in this neighborhood will help fine tune the plan.
