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

What about that MPT presentation about narrowing streets and sidewalks? Not finished, says the state.

Those at the 3/13/16 Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Community Update meeting saw an MPT (Maintenance and Protection of Traffic) presentation, regarding how access to streets and sidewalks will change as construction on the project moves forward.

But that presentation, prepared by Greenland Forest City Partners consultant Stantec and discussed--if not fully evaluated--by the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT), has not yet been made public on the page maintained by Empire State Development (ESD), the state authority overseeing and shepherding the project.

I checked with ESD, which told me that the presentation will be posted only when DOT approves it. While it makes some sense to want the most up-to-date information, this was a public meeting, and attendees could simply try to reconstruct the presentation. There's no reason, in my book, not to share that presentation under the caveat that it's a draft.
