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

Carlton Avenue Bridge expected to reopen on or around Sept. 24

The Carlton Avenue Bridge will, in fact, reopen before the Barclays Center arena opens--offering key traffic flow but still leaving a bad taste for those who remembered that, when it closed in January 2008, the timetable was two years.

On or around September 24, 2012, Carlton Avenue will re-open to vehicular traffic as a two-way roadway between between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street. Drivers can turn left or right on Atlantic Avenue.

After Carlton Avenue reopens, Pacific Street between Carlton and Sixth Avenue will change from one-way westbound to a two-way roadway.

As shown in the map below, an eastbound turn onto Pacific will be permissible only for those accessing the surface parking lot associated with the arena. For more information, see or
