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

Next week, changes on Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue to effectuate construction

As promised--though slightly delayed--on or around Thursday, July 10, construction of a new West Portal from the Vanderbilt Yard and a new green roof on the Barclays Center will effect several changes to the roadway network near the arena.

From plan detailed in early June
The construction will convert Pacific Street, between Sixth and Carlton Avenues, from two-way to one-way westbound for about four months.

Vehicles will be able to access this block from both northbound and southbound Carlton Avenue, according to a Community Notice sent out yesterday.

The north sidewalk on Pacific Street, near Sixth Avenue only, will be closed to pedestrian traffic. Parking along the north side of Pacific Street, near Sixth Avenue only, will be prohibited. These will persist for about a year.

Also, parking and loading along the north side of Atlantic Avenue, between Ft. Greene Place and Cumberland Street will be prohibited. The westbound B45 bus stop on the north side of Atlantic Avenue, at S. Portland Avenue, will be temporarily removed, and passengers will be directed to use stop on Atlantic Avenue to the east, at Carlton Avenue.

The Atlantic Avenue parking prohibition and bus stop removal will be in effect for approximately 24 months.

After Atlantic Avenue is narrowed Atlantic Avenue will occur overnight and should take two nights to complete. Following that, work to remove the concrete median on Atlantic Avenue will be during daytime hours.

Below, the full notice.
