OK, now Sixth Avenue between Atlantic/Pacific will be closed Friday night through Monday morning

A community notice issued yesterday updates the timing for a long-planned--and twice-postponed-closure of a street at the northeast corner of the arena block.

Changes to the Roadway Network: From Friday, July 14, 2017 at 10PM through Monday, July 17, 2017 at 5:00AM
As part of West Portal construction for the Pacific Park Brooklyn project, infrastructure work will require temporary closure of travel lanes and crosswalks near Sixth & Atlantic Avenue.
Because of Long Island Railroad schedules, work previously planned has been rescheduled to begin on Friday, July 14, 2017 through Monday, June 17, 2017:
Sixth Avenue between Atlantic Avenue & Pacific Street will be completely closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The south and west crosswalks at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Sixth Avenue/S. Portland Avenue will be closed. Pedestrians must follow the sidewalk along the north side of Atlantic Avenue to reach points south, as shown in the diagram below.
Additionally, the right-hand eastbound travel lane on Atlantic Avenue between Fort Greene Place & Sixth Avenue/S. Portland Avenue will be closed, reducing the eastbound roadway to one lane.
Traffic Enforcement Agents and flaggers will be on site to assist with vehicular and pedestrian movements. Variable Message Signs will direct vehicles to the approved detour routes.
