Heads Up On The Brooklyn Bridge
Just a reminder-with the nearing completion of the Brooklyn Bridge Manhattan side approach, cyclists will be switched to the north side of the promenade and peds will be moved to the south side. The switch is an effort to eliminate conflicts that occur when pedestrians (read: tourists) meander over to the south side of the path to get a better photo of Lady Liberty.
The DOT says appropriate changes will be made on the north side of promenade to eliminate hazardous obstacles for cyclists. Changes include: moving the stanchions along the north side of the promenade to allow for added width, closing the stairwell leading to the subway and narrowing the stairwell leading underneath the bridge.
