This Week: Lafayette Avenue Bike Lane, Park Slope 20 MPH Zone

Having set up a process for neighborhoods to request 20 mph zones, the city Department of Transportation has sparked a citywide discussion about appropriate traffic speeds on residential streets. That discussion will come to Park Slope this weekend in a public forum held by the Park Slope Civic Council weighing the merits of a slow speed zone and how it might be implemented in that neighborhood.

Also: Tonight the transportation committee of Brooklyn Community Board 2 will consider a proposal from local residents to stripe a bike lane on Lafayette Avenue [1], and the city’s extensive public outreach for its bike-share program continues, with discussions in both English and Spanish.
