New Traffic Patterns Cause Confusion Near Atlantic Yards Project
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some drivers in Brooklyn were left scratching their heads around the Atlantic Yards project after new traffic patterns went into effect Monday morning.
The most significant change is an end to northbound traffic on the one block of Fourth Avenue between Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues.
1010 WINS’ Al Jones reports: Confusion In Brooklyn
To get to Flatbush drivers can turn right at Pacific Street or turn left onto Atlantic, right onto Third Avenue and then east on Schermerhorn Street.
“Yet more problems in Brooklyn,” one driver said.
“I like to go straight, it’s more easier,” another driver said.

Additionally, Pacific between Fourth and Flatbush is still one-way but now it’s going eastbound instead of west. Cars will be able to turn onto Flatbush, but no through truck traffic will be permitted on Pacific.
The intersection at Pacific Street and Flatbush Avenue now has a new traffic signal, crosswalk and larger sidewalk to accommodate the new traffic.
