The Department of Transportation started playing around with some ideas to improve the safety and flow of traffic on Tillary Street in Downtown Brooklyn last summer, but on Tuesday night it hosted a brain-storming session with 50 or so residents to see if they had missed anything. “This is a once-in-a-century opportunity to re-create this area,” said DOT project director Randy Wade. One break-out group discussed reducing the size of the service roads on Adams Street while widening the medians; other ideas included better bike lanes and the prohibition of special permit parking. The $12 million project is not slated to begin until 2012.
