Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

An SUV, apparently driven by a construction worker, speeds south the wrong way on Carlton Avenue

What's wrong with this picture? Carlton Avenue in Prospect Heights is a one-way street, northbound.

The black vehicle, apparently driven by a construction worker--coming from the official Atlantic Yards staging area and wearing a reflective vest--drove southbound yesterday afternoon, speeding, from Pacific to Bergen streets, according to Atlantic Yards Watch.

That, understandably, alarmed drivers and pedestrians.

Yesterday, after a separate Atlantic Yards Watch report about trucks parking on the sidewalk, the police responded promptly. Let's see if that happens in this case, as well.

Carlton Avenue will be one route to the surface parking lot serving the Barclays Center. When the arena's open, presumably there will be police and traffic enforcement agents on the street.
