NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A public meeting was held in New Haven on Thursday night where residents could voice their opinions on a proposed bike lane project.

The proposal includes adding bike lanes along Edgewood Avenue, which would take away parking spots, impacting business owners and residents. The city says the project would cost $1.2 million.

Residents that live in the area say they believe the bike lanes would devalue their homes because it would take away from where they can park.

The city says the project would alleviate traffic in the area and that the money is coming from state-bonded resources, made possible before budget cuts.
