On Saturday, piece of Sixth Avenue will close for a few hours so a crane for green roof can be installed on Atlantic

After closing Dean Street and Sixth Avenue around the Barclays Center two weekends ago to allow for the erection of a giant crane to assist in the installation of a green roof around the arena, a less intrusive closure is planned for Saturday, October 25, for a few hours between 6 am and 11 pm.

This time, a crane for the green roof will be installed on the Atlantic Avenue side of the arena, which requires the temporary closure of Sixth Avenue, between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street. (It was actually supposed to be installed in August.)
The closure is expected to be in effect for a few hours during the afternoon and/or evening. There will be a detour of vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic from the block, while flagmen and Traffic Enforcement Agents, as well as Variable Message Signs, will be used for assistance.
