GOWANUS — They want a bridge over troubled waters.
Business advocacy group Gowanus Alliance is floating the idea of building a bike and pedestrian-only bridge over the Gowanus Canal at Fifth Street.
President Paul Basile says a car-free crossing for cyclists and walkers would be an asset in fast-changing Gowanus, especially after the notoriously polluted canal gets cleaned up and new developments draw thousands more residents.
“The canal obviously is going to get clean at some point and there’s a lot of talk about public access,” Basile said. “Since we’re in the early stages of planning…the cleanup, I think it’s something that should be presented to our local and state officials.”
