BK Gateway Transportation Workshop March 31 aims to address existing challenges and future ones, including those posed by Barclays Center
The neighborhoods of Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, downtown Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Northern Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights face significant transportation challenges. Existing traffic and parking congestion, demands on transit service and dangerous roads for cyclists and pedestrians already pose hurdles for residents, businesses and the environment.
The opening of the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards will further compound these challenges. The BK Gateway Transportation Workshop will lay the groundwork for developing community driven solutions to the transportation issues facing the area.
· Discuss transportation issues affecting your neighborhood
· Share ideas with transportation experts
· Learn about strategies to increase pedestrian and cyclist safety, reduce congestion, and improve transit
· Help develop a plan for the future of transportation and transit in our community
Residents, business owners, and community organizations welcome!
