We have started a campaign to extend the existing Franklin Avenue bike lane that abruptly ends at Bergen Street. We are asking that Franklin between Atlantic and Eastern parkway consist of 1 traffic lane for cars and 1 bike lane, the parking lanes would remain as is.
There are paper petitions available to sign at various locations along Franklin Avenue (including Dutch Boy Burger, HAD Associates, Franklin Park, and The Candy Rush) or you can send us an email as follows:

Subject line: Create a designated bike lane on Franklin Avenue
Body of email:
We, the undersigned support Crow Hill Community Association’s proposal to convert the 2 existing traffic lanes on Franklin Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway to 1 lane of vehicular traffic and 1 designated bike lane. This would make traffic conditions on Franklin Avenue safer for pedestrians as well as create a secure thoroughfare for cyclists continuing on Franklin to Crow Hill/Eastern Parkway/Prospect Park from the designated Franklin Avenue bike lane that currently exists north of Atlantic Avenue.
