Plaza Street Bike Lane on the Agenda at Brooklyn CB 6 Tonight

3:40 PM EDT on April 19, 2012

A quick reminder: Tonight's meeting of the Brooklyn Community Board 6 transportation committee is an important one, with DOT presenting its proposal for a two-way bike lane on Plaza Street. The public is invited to participate in the meeting, so if you want to weigh in on this upgrade to the Brooklyn bike network and whether it should be protected from traffic with a row of parked cars, tonight's your chance.

Also on the agenda tonight is a proposal to fill in a one-block gap in the Third Street bike lane between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue, and -- in what seems to be an increasingly common item in the DOT toolkit -- on-street bike parking for the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue by Park Place.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at 1 Prospect Park West, in the Turner Room.
