Campaign HistoryAtlantic Avenue is one of Brooklyn’s busiest streets, but it lacks the bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure needed to protect Brooklynites from dangerous traffic. This critical East-West corridor runs through dense commercial and residential neighborhoods, but its wide span encourages drivers to regularly drive twice the legal speed limit. The T.A. Brooklyn Activist Committee is calling for a ''Complete Street'' with protected bike lanes, traffic calming measures and pedestrian safety improvements on Atlantic Avenue East of Flatbush Avenue to reduce lethal speeding, boost local business and improve quality of life along the entire corridor. On Atlantic Avenue West of Flatbush Avenue, the Committee is working with local partners to request pedestrian, transit and bicycle improvements, including Bus Bulb Outs, safer crosswalks, pedestrian plazas and an enhanced shared bicycle route.
