The Shore Parkway Greenway Connector Master Plan examines existing conditions, highlights opportunities, and presents recommendations, supported by technical analysis, to guide the implementation of new or improved bicycle facilities on a five-mile route along the missing inland section of one of the City’s premier waterfront greenways located in southern Brooklyn. Completing this gap would provide a continuous 23-mile greenway for bicyclists, pedestrians, joggers, rollerbladers and others to travel safely and continuously along or near the waterfront through many of Brooklyn’s finest parks, open spaces and neighborhoods.
The master plan emphasizes the continuity of two-way bicycle traffic along the route, compatibility between links, proximity to the waterfront, and the safety of all users. The plan outlines both short- and long-term options. Its primary goal is to upgrade the existing Class 3 (signed only) route. Wherever possible, the preferred action is to plan, design, and build a Class 1 separated off-street path that is consistent with the existing Shore Parkway Greenway. Where on-street, the proposed Class 2 striped bicycle lanes keep all eastbound and westbound users together on the same route.
New York City is committed to making cycling part of the City's transportation system and encourages individuals and communities to participate in the implementation of this Plan.
The master plan is available as one complete document ( 22 MB) or by chapters in PDF format:
