Merry Gridlock III

A Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods traffic analysis predicts gridlock conditions could be almost daily events in the current Atlantic Yards plan. To highlight the need for further regional analysis and better area-wide traffic solutions, the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods will be holding an information event. This is an opportunity to point out how Atlantic Yards will exacerbate the already traffic-packed intersection of Atlantic, Flatbush, and 4th Avenues. Volunteers will be holding signs, distributing literature, and helping pedestrians navigate these dangerous intersections.
