EAST ELMHURST — A plan to put a bike line on 31st Avenue, connecting cyclists to the Queens waterfront, got the OK from Community Board 3.
The bike lane will ultimately connect Astoria to the Flushing promenade, broadening access to the borough's largest park, according to the Queens Bike Initiative which helped advocate for the lane.
The lane will wind past Astoria Park, Socrates Sculpture Park and other green spaces, according to the DOT's proposal.
Members of Community Board 3, which covers Jackson Heights, Corona and East Elmurst, voted in favor of it at their monthly meeting outside I.S. 227 Thursday.
Community Board 1, which covers another portion of the bike lane, is expected to vote in support at its meeting on Tuesday.
