DOT expands protected bike lane in Brooklyn
The Department of Transportation has expanded a protected bike lane route in Brooklyn, going all the way to the Bronx.
In total, the DOT says the ride is 9 miles of protected space from Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn to the Willis Avenue Bridge.
Protected bike lanes separate riders from traffic by some type of barrier, like a line of parked cars.
Some residents tell News 12 that having the bike lane will make them feel safer on the streets.
