On Tuesday, May 24, Forest City Ratner (FCR) announced permanent changes to be made to the roadway network beginning on or about July 24.

Fourth Avenue (between Atlantic Avenue and Flatbush Avenue only) will be converted to one-way southbound. Pacific Street (between Fourth Avenue and Flatbush Avenue only) will be reversed, changing from one-way westbound to one-way eastbound. To accommodate this change, a new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Pacific Street and Flatbush Avenue, as will a new crosswalk across Flatbush Avenue. Vehicles will be able to make right or left turns onto Flatbush Avenue at this location. This block can be accessed from both northbound and southbound Fourth Avenue.

Fourth Avenue northbound traffic, including all commercial vehicles, can use Third Avenue via Atlantic Avenue to access Flatbush Avenue. Pacific Street will offer secondary access to Flatbush Avenue. No through truck traffic will be permitted on Pacific Street.

There will be a community forum to discuss the new traffic patterns on June 14 at 6:30pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall. There will be a presentation detailing the traffic changes and the public will have an opportunity to ask questions.  Click here to view the community notice as well as the detailed presentation that will be shown at the community forum.  For more information, community members may email FCR's community liaison office at
