Changes to intersection of Atlantic and Sixth, including one-way traffic on Sixth, require two nights of overnight work starting Tuesday
This was not part of the two-week Construction Update issued earlier this week. Some of the changes, which will last about eight months, were supposed to have begun in October:
1. One block of Sixth Avenue, between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street, will be converted from two-way traffic to one-way northbound only for about eight months.Night work coming
2. The southeast corner of Atlantic and Sixth Avenues will be closed to pedestrians.
3. At the intersection of Atlantic and Sixth Avenues, both the east crosswalk (which crosses Atlantic Avenue) and the south crosswalk (which crosses Sixth Avenue) will be closed. Those crossing Atlantic Avenue must use the west crosswalk. Those crossing Sixth Avenue must either use the crosswalk at Pacific Street, or use the crosswalk at S. Portland Avenue.
The north sidewalk on Pacific Street, near Sixth Avenue, will remain closed to pedestrian traffic for another eight months.
According to the notice, adjustments of work zones and roadway striping on Atlantic and Sixth Avenues will occur both overnight and during daytime hours and are expected to take two days/nights to complete. Also, work under the new configuration will occur during daytime hours, but "occasional night work may be required."
