"Think driving the Brooklyn Bridge can be nerve-racking?" asks an article by Winnie Hu. "Try squeezing onto an elevated, wood-and-concrete promenade that runs above its six vehicle lanes."
According to Hu, New York City transportation officials this week announced the launch of a seven-month engineering study of a potential new bike and pedestrian path on the bridge. AECOM will conduct the study, assessing "how much weight the bridge can carry, and consider options for expansion, including widening the existing promenade by building decks on top of the girders that run directly above the car lanes," reports Hu.
