Construction plans for B3 tower constrict Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, narrow access to secondary arena entrance

Among the documents released from the 5/19/15 meeting of the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation (AY CDC) are plans to constrict the area around the site of the B3 tower at Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, for which construction begins next month.

Note that, as of next month, Sixth Avenue north of Dean Street will be constricted considerably, as foundation and excavation work begins.

Road changes planned as of June 2015
During construction of the superstructure, beginning in January, Dean Street will be narrowed even more, near Sixth.

Combined with the already constricted section of Dean Street near the B2 modular tower, still under construction, that suggests a rather challenging experience for Barclays Center attendees using the Dean Street entrance, which is the second-largest entrance to the arena.

Protected passageways five feet wide will be maintained so pedestrian traffic can proceed on the north side of Dean Street, but for much of the block those pathways will be taking up the streetbed.

Road changes planned as of January 2016
