On Friday May 4th, NYC DOT Brooklyn Boro Commissioner Keith Bray and NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) Deputy Commissioner for Infrastructure Eric MacFarlane joined elected officials to mark the beginning of a $37 million project to bring improvements consistent with Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan to a 23-block section of Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, from Logan Street to Georgia Avenue.


“DOT’s work with DDC will make conditions safer for everyone who travels along this part of Atlantic Avenue, which is not only a crucial connector for Brooklyn, but also a Vision Zero Great Street and Priority Corridor,” said DOT Brooklyn Borough Commissioner Keith Bray. “We thank all of the elected officials who have worked for and helped fund these safety enhancements, including Borough President Adams, Congresswoman Velazquez, State Senators Dilan and Persaud, Assembly Member Walker, and Council Member Espinal.”
