Recently the Department of Transportation in Brooklyn decided to close a 14-block cycling route in Williamsburg. The route stretches from Division Ave. to Flushing Ave.
The DOT press representative, Nicole Garcia, wasn’t prepared to comment on the subject when called early this morning.
Many non-cycling residents of Williamsburg are pleased with the DOT’s decision. There have been complaints about the lanes taking up available parking spaces, and hurting local small businesses since they were made.
