Important Meeting for Livable Streets Advocates
Brooklyn Community Board 6‘s transportation committee will hear presentations and community input on the following items:
and discussion of a proposal by the Department of Transportation for
improvements designed to enhance pedestrian mobility, access and
comfort at the Grand Army Plaza.
- Presentation by the Department of Transportation of a plan to install two-way Class II bicycle lanes and roadway markings for left-turn turning lanes along 9th Street between 3rd Avenue and Prospect Park West.
- Presentation by the Department of Transportation of a plan to install Class III bicycle routes in Red Hook.
- Discussion and consideration of the Department of Transportation’s investigation into the installation of a speed hump on Columbia Street between Halleck Street and the Gowanus Bay.
As is always the case with bike lane projects — and maybe more so in this case — there will be community opposition to this plan. Noah Budnick from Transportation Alternatives urges advocates to attend and express their support.
