Coming Soon: Safer Streets Near BAM


At the CB2 Transportation meeting this week, DOT's Chris Hrones presented plans for a more pedestrian-friendly set-up near BAM and the LIRR station, reports Streetsblog. "Cars will no longer be able to turn onto Hanson Place from the intersection of Flatbush and Fourth Avenue, where a new permanent sidewalk will be constructed. Pedestrians will also be able to cross Flatbush and Fourth Avenue more easily, with the implementation of a 31-second exclusive walk phase. Pedestrians currently have an eight-second interval to cross Flatbush before turning vehicles get a green light," they write. Work should begin in three weeks.
