More Bike Lanes for Brooklyn CB 1

Streetsblog has gotten word that bike lane construction is set to proceed next month on several streets in Brooklyn Community Board 1 territory.

An August 31 letter to CB 1 District Manager Gerald Esposito from DOT Brooklyn Borough Commissioner Joseph Palmieri lists the following planned improvements:

  • Bedford Avenue between Rogers Avenue and Division Street
  • Division Street between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street
  • Franklin Avenue between Dean Street and Wallabout Street
  • Wythe Avenue between Wallabout Street and North 14" Street
  • Banker Street between Nassau Avenue and Franklin Street
  • Franklin Street between North 14" Street and Eagle Street
  • Eagle Street between West Street and McGuinness Boulevard
  • Freeman Street between McGuinness Boulevard and West Street

"Completion of this project will yield a continuous bicycle route of 11 miles in each direction spanning Brooklyn from Sheepshead Bay in the south to the Newtown Creek in the north," Palmieri writes.
