Brooklyn, NY: No Controversy as Park Slope Panel Backs Flatbush Ave. Bike Lane (War on Cars Watch)

Members of a Brooklyn community board unanimously supported a Department of Transportation plan for a protected bike lane on Flatbush Avenue from Grand Army Plaza to Empire Boulevard.

“It’s a really strong proposal. It replicates what was done on Prospect Park West almost a decade ago that has worked very well,” said Community Board 6 Transportation Committee Co-Chairman Eric McClure at his committee’s Thursday night vote.

The non-controversial proposal goes to the full board on June 12. Work is expected to begin this summer, the DOT told Streetsblog.
