BROOKLYN - A judge on Tuesday dismissed an effort by Brooklyn residents to remove a hotly contested bicycle lane installed by the city on Prospect Park West.

Some Brooklyn residents sued the city earlier this year, saying the Department of Transportation used misleading information to justify keeping what was supposed to be a temporary bike lane.

The plaintiffs claimed the DOT inflated the number of accidents before installing the lane, which they say reduces room for cars.

City officials say the proper procedures were followed before the bike lane was put in place. Bike lane proponents cycle to raise supportSuit: Get rid of dangerous bike lane in Prospect ParkDOT work on Prospect Park bike lanes under way
