  • I expect the Sea Crest renters to enjoy the lanes a great deal.
  • "Currently the seven-block stretch has two moving lanes, but they’re so narrow that drivers tend to drive down the middle of the road."

    Goodness. All of Franklin Avenue between Eastern Parkway and Empire Boulevard should be one lane for vehicular traffic. There isn't enough space for two lanes! 
  • The parking lanes could go away.

    On which side of Franklin is the existing bike lane, on the side where the bus stops are or on the opposite side?

    The article is somewhat premature.

    It was approved by a committee, but the full board has yet to approve it.

    Here is what it will/would look like:

    Bikes would have a lane going south, toward Empire.

    CB9's next meeting (shitshow) is scheduled for March 28th.
