Atlantic Yards Street Closures to Kick In Next Month


    Get ready for the Atlantic Yards-related inconveniences to begin! As Atlantic Yards Report posted yesterday, three streets in the project’s footprint will be closed as of Feburary 1: (1) Pacific between Carlton and Vanderbilt; (2) Pacific between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue; (3) 5th Avenue between Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues. How is this likely to impact traffic in the area? “Expect a lot more traffic on Sixth Avenue between Flatbush Avenue and Pacific Street, which will become two-way,” says AYR. In addition, points out NY1, the B63 bus stop at Fifth Avenue between Pacific and Atlantic will also be eliminated.
