The Carlton Avenue Bridge, west of Vanderbilt Avenue, was closed in January 2008, and the DOT announced this year that construction on the bridge should be complete by January 2010. The Atlantic Yards Report points out, however, that the DOT has “quietly advanced” the completion date to January 2011. The Report also suspects that the date will in actuality be later still, due to details in the filed documents and communications regarding the bridge: Forest City Ratner, the developer of the Atlantic Yards project, has three years to complete the bridge without penalty, but is trying to take advantage of a loophole by claiming Unavoidable Delay, which would extend the deadline to 2013.
