Park Slope Wants to Go Both Ways (Traffic-wise)


After a biker was killed earlier this year on 8th Avenue, a one-way street where folks often zoom by, Park Slopers are hoping to change this and a few other streets to two-ways, reports the Brooklyn Paper. In a 2007 study, Transportation Alternatives found that traffic on 8th Avenue averages 40 miles per hour, which is 10 miles above the speed limit; two-way traffic on 7th Avenue, on the other hand, stays at about 25 mph. Last year, the DOT aimed to change 6th and 7th Avenues to one-ways and the community wasn't having it.
