New Bike Lanes on Hoyt and Smith Will Provide Safer Bridge Access

New Hoyt and Smith Bike Lanes
Cyclists headed for the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges from Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and all points south won't have to run quite such a daunting gauntlet much longer: sometime in the spring, the Department of Transportation will be adding green bike lanes on Smith between Bergen and 9th Street and Hoyt from Bergen to 3rd Street (as shown at right, in blue).

The new lanes, which will require the removal of a total of nine parking space, should provide safer connections from the area's east-west lanes on Union, 3rd and 9th with the bridge approaches on Boerum Place. No word yet on how soon these lanes will be painted, but given how quickly the DOT is moving on other bike lane projects, sooner rather than later seems likely. (Brownstoner)
