We Demand the Closure of the Clinton Street Entrance to Williamsburg Bridge

Clinton Street is a wholly inappropriate approach to the Williamsburg Bridge. The street is narrow and parallels a bike lane. Traffic frequently enters into the bike lane when turning from Grand Street, and the pedestrian crossing at Grand and Clinton is extremely dangerous. The streets leading to the Clinton Street bridge-feed traverse a primarily residential neighborhood that is ill equipped to deal with the traffic volume and there is a significant impact on the quality of life. The exhaust and noise pollution generated by vehicles is intolerable and not appropriate for a residential neighborhood.
