New York, NY — NYC planning more bike lanes in Brooklyn. This plan will include lanes along 4th Avenue north to Barclays Center and along Meeker Avenue in Williamsburg, connecting the Williamsburg Bridge to the new Kosciusko Bridge bike path.
“I can’t imagine a better place to kick off this year’s Green Wave than my beloved Brooklyn,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We’re redoubling our efforts to protect cyclists, and New Yorkers can expect to see many more protected bike lanes across the city this year.”
As part of the Mayor’s Green Wave plan, the Department of Transportation has committed to building 30 miles of new protected bike lanes citywide in 2020. At least ten of those miles will be in Brooklyn.
“We are continuing to expand the protected bike lane network across Brooklyn to better accommodate cyclists,” said Deputy Mayor Laura Anglin. “We know protected bike lanes are key to making city streets safer for everyone on the road.”
