Modifications have been made to the design for the pedestrian bridge linking Squibb Park to Brooklyn Bridge Park, in order to make it comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. These modifications, which include modification of guardrails, installation of wall-mounted handrails on the ramp down from Columbia Heights to Squibb Park, bituminous concrete landings on the ramp, raised and reset capstones, and pedestrian lighting, will be discussed by BBPC President Regina Myer at tomorrow evening’s Community Board 2 Parks and Recreation Committee meeting, which begins at 6:00 at Dining Rooms A&B (off of the cafeteria), Brooklyn Hospital, 121 DeKalb Avenue at St. Felix Street, in Fort Greene.
