City Hopes Speed Bumps Help to Slow Barclays Center Traffic

Traffic calming measures either already or about to be implemented in time for Sept. 28 opening.


Slow down, bump ahead! 

The city Department of Transportation will continue to install speed bumps in the blocks surrounding Barclays Center to ensure that vehicles traveling to and from the soon-to-be-opened arena drive safely.

According to a list released by Councilwoman Letitia James, D-Fort Greene, two more speed bump locations are on tap for Park Slope.

The speed bumps will be placed on Plaza Street West between Lincoln Place and Berkeley Place and Plaza Street West between Berkeley Place and Union Street.

Along with the two speed bumps approved for Park Slope, DOT cleared traffic slowing measures for the following streets in Fort Greene-Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights:

-Ashland Place between Lafayette Avenue and Hanson Place

-Carlton Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue

-Clinton Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue.

-Prospect Place between Carlton Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue

-Prospect Place between Vanderbilt Avenue to Underhill Avenue

-Prospect Place between Underhill Avenue to Washington Avenue

-Sterling Place between Washington Avenue and Underhill Avenue
