Brooklyn Bridge Park Transportation and Access Study Public Meeting
The Downtown Brooklyn Waterfront Local Development Corporation (DBWLDC) is holding a second public meeting to discuss the Brooklyn Bridge Park transportation and access study. It will be another opportunity for the public to give feedback and share ideas on transit options to-and-from the park.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5th at 6:00 p.m. in the St. Francis College auditorium (182 Remsen St.). Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in focus groups led by the transportation engineers. The groups will discuss bicycle/pedestrian improvements, bus/jitney route options and vertical connections.
"We encourage everyone to come out and help us explore options to access the new Brooklyn Bridge Park," said DBWLDC Chairman Hank Gutman. "Since the park stretches 1.3 miles, we want to make sure that visitors have a variety of ways to get there."
The study examines potential means of entry to the planned Brooklyn Bridge Park with a goal of reducing reliance on personal vehicles. The study reviews a variety of options including potential vertical connections from Brooklyn Heights, subway access, bike lanes, greenway connections, jitney buses, waterborne transportation and improved pedestrian accommodations.
