The Department of Transportation (DOT) is set to unveil their plans for the Greenpoint waterfront route at Community Board 1′s next meeting.

The DOT is proposing the conversion of West Street into a one-way street between Eagle and Quay Streets. The plan also calls for moving utilities that are currently above ground on West Street underground.

The big change will be the construction of a two-way bike lane. The bike lane will connect to the Kent Ave bike lane at Bushwick Inlet and continue north to the planned pedestrian bridge at Ash and Commercial streets which will connect the Brooklyn waterfront to Queens.

The CB 1 meeting at which the presentation will take place will be held on Wednesday, November 14th at 6:30PM at the Swinging 60’s Senior Citizen Center, 211 Ainslie Street.
