Eyes on the Street: A Better Walk to the Center of Bartel Pritchard Square

Bartel Pritchard Square, at the southwest corner of Prospect Park, received some tweaks this morning, including new and re-striped crosswalks enhancing access to the central space in the middle of the traffic circle. There are also markings to channel traffic as it enters the square, and the short stretch of bike lane between Prospect Park West and Prospect Park Southwest has been more clearly marked as two-way.

More tweaks are on the way, along with a bike lane on 15th Street, according to a DOT staffer at the site who spoke this morning with tipster Philip Winn.
