This Week: Tell CB 1 to Stop Holding Up a Safer Metropolitan Ave

DOT first presented a plan for a safer bike connection over the Metropolitan Avenue Bridge between Bushwick and Ridgewood in 2014. Brooklyn Community Board 1 still hasn't endorsed it. Most recently, the board voted to delay action, ostensibly because the design leaves a dangerous left turn in place -- but fewer traffic injuries happen at that intersection than at all but one other intersection in the project area.

The board meets again on Thursday evening. To testify for the plan, you'll need to arrive by 5:45 p.m. to sign up to speak.

Check the Streetsblog calendar for the full list of this week’s events.

    • Thursday: Brooklyn Community Board 1 holds its monthly meeting. 6:30 p.m.
    • Also Thursday: The Parks Department and the Prospect Park Alliance hold a public meeting on improving the Flatbush Avenue perimeter of Prospect Park. 6 p.m.
    • Saturday: Advocates rally in Bay Ridge for a pedestrian and bicycle path on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. 12 p.m.

Watch the calendar for updates. Drop us a line if you have an event we should know about.
