Eyes on the Street: A New Bike Corral and a Safer Intersection in Cobble Hill

Yesterday, DOT crews installed a bike corral on Court Street near the intersection with Pacific Street, in a "no standing" zone that was often ignored. Like other bike corrals the city has recently installed, this one will improve safety for pedestrians by keeping the corner visible to turning drivers. It's also going to improve customer access to nearby retailers, including the Trader Joe's across Court Street.

The planting was done by Atlantic Avenue gardening shop Dig and was paid for by the Cobble Hill Association (the corral is one of several street safety improvements the CHA has called for). The Atlantic Avenue Business Improvement District will maintain the bike corral. Community Board 2's transportation committee voted unanimously in support of the project in June.
