City transit bigwigs announced plans to complete the last leg of the Fourth Avenue protected bike lane project, pledging to fill in the fourteen-block gap between First Street and Flatbush Avenue where the lane abruptly ends and ushers riders into speeding traffic.

The move comes over a year after the lane was originally installed between 64th Street in Sunset Park and First Street in Park Slope. Officials with the Department of Transportation at the time told local community members that they could not extend the lane past First Street due to heavy traffic in the area that would require an additional study.
