Massive Infrastructure Projects Coming to Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway
Prospect Heights Patch
By Amy Sara Clark
Already hit by massive traffic backups caused by the Atlantic Yards construction, Prospect Heights-area residents will soon be facing 18 months of infrastructure projects tearing up both Atlantic Avenue and Eastern Parkway.
Both projects are slated to begin in a few weeks be completed about 18 months later.
At last night’s packed meeting of Community Board 8, which is affected by the projects along with Community Board 2, residents said the projects should have been staggered.
“So these two projects will be happening simultaneously with the Ratner project?” one resident asked incredulously. “There are already waiting times as much as three minutes to clear one block … Why are the projects being done at the same time?”
