DOT is proposing pedestrian safety improvements at the Vision Zero Priority intersection of Flatbush Ave and Atlantic Ave, as part of a comprehensive safety plan for the area. The project includes concrete pedestrian refuge islands to create safer and shorter pedestrian crossings, lane reductions to calm traffic, eliminating dual right-turns to reduce conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles, and signal timing changes to improve traffic flow.
