B63 bus to be rerouted as Fifth Avenue segement closes in May
Atlantic Yards Report on the notice from NYC Transit that the B63 will be rerouted next month:
Given that several cases affecting and potentially blocking the project remain in court, and will not be resolved by the end of the May, I asked NYCT and DOT why the changes are being made in May rather than later. Also, I asked whether any consideration was made to the possibility that the project could be further delayed and/or blocked. (I didn't hear back yesterday.)
After all, Forest City Ratner can always sell the property it owns or build on sites where it has demolished buildings. But if Fifth Avenue is not closed because the developer does not build the project, well, maybe NYCT and DOT would want to restore the original route.
