Starting Tuesday, Atlantic Avenue sidewalk between Sixth & Carlton avenues closed for six months

According to a Community Notice circulated two days ago, a new work zone on the south side of Atlantic Avenue between Sixth and Carlton avenues will be implemented beginning next week (starting as early as Tuesday, July 5) and remain in place for about six months.

That means the south sidewalk, the eastbound vehicle parking lane, and both crosswalks at Cumberland Street will be closed. The eastbound B45 bus stop on Atlantic Avenue at Cumberland Street will be closed, but the stop at the southeast corner of Carlton and Atlantic Avenues will remain open.

While the notice does not explain the work being done, the road constriction was signaled in the most recent Construction Update and surely refers to plans to demolish two buildings, part of the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park site, that "bump" down from Atlantic Avenue into the railyard.

Note that the public and elected officials were given different timelines regarding the constriction of Atlantic Avenue.
