BROOKLYN — Millions of people move around the city by many modes of transportation.
Bike ridership has increased during the pandemic and as the city reopens, plans are moving ahead to create a protected bike lane on the Brooklyn Bridge.
The elevated promenade would be for pedestrians. One lane of the bridge on the Manhattan-bound side would become a two-way bike lane with a barrier separating it from two lanes of cars.
Presentations are being made to community boards. A traffic study will be done in the summer. It could be installed by the fall.

Plans are also being worked on for a protected bike lane and separate pedestrian walkway on the Queensborough Bridge.
