Some fixes coming to Flatbush/Fourth intersection, but no "silver bullets"

Atlantic Yards Report

On Tuesday night, the Transportation Committee of Brooklyn Community Board 2 heard the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) detail some fixes for the congested intersection of Flatbush and Fourth avenues. However, DOT is not yet ready to take some additional steps to deal with this complicated transit hub.

It may have been prudence, not ignorance, that DOT representatives wouldn't discuss plans for Atlantic Yards--as of now, no one knows when and what would be built--but it still was odd they didn't address changes already aired (though not to be implemented?) in the Atlantic Yards environmental review.

Check out the rest of the article for details about improvements in pedestrian crossings and mitigations proposed in the Atlantic Yards Environmental Impact Statement.
