The Brooklyn Greenway is coming together, one painstaking little piece at a time. The 14-mile proposed path would provide a safe and, dare we say, enjoyable means for pedestrians and cyclists to travel between Greenpoint and Bay Ridge, and the good news (depending on your outlook on these things) is that three more sections in Red Hook, Greenpoint and the Brooklyn Navy Yard have all been added to DOT's construction calendar.

In Red Hook, the plan is to connect Columbia Street to Louis Valentino Jr. Park by extending the existing Degraw Street route to Van Brunt, then to Imlay and finally, down into the park via Conover and Ferris streets. Shared bike lanes will also be added to Van Brunt Street. Construction is slated to begin this summer, and will cost around $12.5 million.

Over in Greenpoint, the Wall Street Journal reports that CB 1's transportation committee recently approved bike paths and storm water infrastructure upgrades along West Street, and on Flushing Avenue near the Navy Yard, the existing path will be "widened and separated in both directions." Construction on both of these portions of the greenway, which will cost $10 million and $8 million, respectively, are scheduled to begin in 2014. Let the Bike Lane Wars rage on!
