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.
