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

DOT rep expected at next Tuesday's Quality of Life meeting; questions about response to arena operations and current/future construction

The agenda for the 1/28/20 Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Quality of Life Meeting was circulated yesterday by Empire State Development, the state authority that oversees/shepherds the project.

And while the agenda was typically thin--a mere list of presenters--it did include something new: a New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) representative is expected to be in attendance.

That's a response to concerns raised about traffic chaos on certain Barclays Center event days, as well as during project construction, especially near Sixth Avenue between Dean Street and Atlantic Avenue.

Now that construction is expected to ramp up along Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues for the B12 and B13 towers, constraining a passageway that's supposed to accommodate buses and bikes along with business and post office operations, residents have questions.

Other questions

Of course there are other significant questions for the meeting, such as the expected progress for the platform over the Vanderbilt Yard, the plan to meet the 2025 affordable housing deadline, and the progress of condemnation at Site 5, as well as other plans for that parcel.

    Would be great to understand what the rules (or lack of rules) are about parking on sidewalks around 6th Avenue and the Dean St playground. Makes an already congested area even worse. I cannot imagine having to navigate that in a wheelchair.
