This Week: Showtime for the Clinton Avenue Protected Bikeway

After dropping hints back in January about a two-way protected bike lane on Clinton Avenue and going door-to-door to get the word out last month, DOT will present details about the project this week at Brooklyn Community Board 2.

With rumors swirling about the redesign, opponents are breaking out the scare tactics, which were on display at a gathering last Thursday:
