Good news for North Brooklyn bicyclists: Work on the much-delayed Pulaski Bridge bikeway will start Monday, September 14. It might even be completed by the end of this year, Assemblyman Joseph Lentol told Streetsblog.

The highly anticipated bike path was originally set to open in 2014, but a series of delays relating to the contractor, design challenges, and funding held up construction. Last month, the Department of Transportation announced newly discovered drainage design issues would delay the bikeway even further, until April 2016.

The drainage design complications were fixed more quickly than expected, according to Lentol.
