This Week: Three Big Protected Bike Lane Projects

DOT's plans for protected bike lane plans on Chrystie Street, Jay Street, and Queens Boulevard have major significance for the city's bike network. This week there are public meetings related to all three of these projects.

Check the Streetsblog calendar for a full list of events. Here are the highlights:

    • Tuesday: The two-way protected bike lane planned for Chrystie Street will run along the western edge of Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Manhattan Community Board 3 requested that DOT organize a public meeting with the Sara D. Roosevelt Park Coalition to ensure seniors and the visually-impaired are included in the planning process. 2 p.m.
    • Also Tuesday: Queens Community Board 4 is scheduled to vote on DOT’s plan to extend the Queens Boulevard protected bike lanes in May, but Tuesday’s meeting will be the last time to comment on the project before that vote. That's because at meetings where votes are held, the CB 4 always votes before opening the floor to public comment. 7:30 p.m.
    • Wednesday: The full board of Brooklyn Community Board 2 is expected to vote on DOT's plan for protected bike lanes on Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn, which the transportation committee endorsed last month. DOT may show design details for the areas by the Manhattan Bridge and south of Fulton Street that were not finished at the time of last month's meeting. 6 p.m.

Be sure to check the calendar for updates and, as always, drop us a line if you know about an event that we missed.
