Eyes on the Street: Plaza Street Bike Lane Goes Both Ways
Posted By Ben Fried On July 12, 2012 @ 6:17 pm In Bicycling,Bike Lanes,DOT,Grand Army Plaza | 11 Comments
Well, the paint and striping aren’t all the way there yet, but there’s now room to bike in both directions on Plaza Street in Brooklyn. Doug Gordon posted a few pictures on BrooklynSpoke  this morning, and reader Steve O’Neill sent in a few more. This DOT project  will make it much more convenient to bike between the neighborhoods surrounding Grand Army Plaza while following the letter of the law, but lacks the physical protection of an earlier plan . Word is the implementation will wrap up pretty quickly.
Here’s how things were looking earlier today.
