DOT and CB1 committee support more bike parking in Williamsburg

Finding a parking spot may be a competitive sport in Brooklyn, but six spots stand a good chance of being sacrificed to make room for 45 bike parking slots, as laid out in a Department of Transportation (DOT) plan covering several North Brooklyn streets.

The bicycle corrals are slated for a stretch of Grand Street near Driggs Avenue (outside Williamsburg Cinemas), Broadway near Berry Avenue (near Marlow and Sons), and Frost Street at Meeker Avenue.

Brooklyn Community Board 1’s transportation committee approved the plan at their March meeting, agreeing with the DOT that the parking spot trade-off provides more benefits than downsides. The plan still faces a board vote at the April 9 meeting.
