The Brooklyn Eagle sat in on a discussion with one group that focused on the Tillary-Adams intersection. Members of the group brainstormed several ideas, including shrinking the service roads and widening the medians as a way of allowing more room for pedestrians to cross safely.
Other ideas discussed: A wider central median on Adams Street, possibly even with park benches; larger and safer bicycle lanes; and more here.
In June, the DOT made a trial change in traffic patterns at the intersection of Adams and Tillary streets, at the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. This intersection (marked with an orange arrow, above) has been the scene of many devastating accidents.
