The New York City Department of Transportation will be conducting outreach in Brooklyn community boards 12 and 14 as part of a community bike network planning process. Brooklyn Community Districts 12 and 14 are Priority Bicycle Districts, as identified in the City's Safer Cycling 2017 report. These districts that have the highest ratio of cyclists killed or severely injured to bicycle network coverage. DOT is prioritizing these areas for bicycle network expansion.
By 2022, the goal of installing a total of 75 miles of bicycle facilities in the ten Bicycle Priority Districts will be accomplished meeting the increasing demand for new bicycle lanes while addressing the urgent need for improved cyclist safety. In addition, the City is committed to continue to implement 50 lane miles of bicycle facilities, including at least ten miles of protected bicycle lanes.
