Group DescriptionA group featuring photos taken of or from the two-way protected bike lane on Prospect Park West in Brooklyn, New York City. Photos must feature the bike lane.
New York City Department of Transportation installed the bike lane in June 2010.
"In 2007, Community Board 6 raised the issue of speeding traffic along Prospect Park West to DOT. The Community Board also requested improved bicycle access to Prospect Park. In response DOT designed a protected on-street bike path for Prospect Park West to address both concerns simultaneously.
"The Prospect Park West project has calmed traffic. The project was installed in June 2010. Data collected in July 2010 indicate that speeding has been dramatically reduced, now fewer than one of every seven vehicles exceed the speed limit on Prospect Park West." -NYCDOT
I started this group after some chatter on Twitter about collecting photos. I live in Chicago but I'm keeping track of the Prospect Park West "drama".
