Carlton will be two-way, afterall?
Carlton Avenue at Dean Street
Brooklyn, New York
These new traffic signs were installed today. They imply that the block of Carlton Avenue between Dean and Pacific Streets (it's out of view, behind the camera), will be changed from one-way to two-way, despite a recent presentation by Forest City Ratner that this would not happen. Carlton is currently one-way, going north (from the background to foreground in this photo). Parking along the eastern side of the block would be removed to accommodate the two-way traffic.
The closure of several blocks, rerouting of traffic, removal of some off-street parking and the creation of off-street parking for the NYPD 78th precinct would all occur for Atlantic Yards construction.
