Atlantic Avenue at BQE - Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway Access
Starting June 5, 2012 the NYC DOT will be making safety improvements to Atlantic Avenue at the BQE on-ramp. The proposed improvements include:
. Changing the traffic signal pattern and eliminating Right Turn on Red to improve pedestrian
safety across the BQE on-ramp:
• Building traffic islands to eliminate illegal turns and provide safer pedestrian crossings,
improving access to Brooklyn Bridge Park;
• Reconfiguring lane markings to better organize traffic and discourage illegal turns.
The DOT advises that there will be some overnight on-ramp closures until this work is completed.
