The New York City Department of Tranportation recently unveiled a comprehensive safety plan for the high-traffic intersection of Flatbush Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and 4th Avenue in Prospect Heights, near the Barclay's Center.
Pedestrians must contend with long, angled crossings and lots of turning drivers. Since 2008, four pedestrians and one cyclist have been killed in the project area, which extends along Flatbush from Lafayette Avenue to Atlantic. Between 2010 and 2014, 57 pedestrians and 21 cyclists were injured, and 51 percent of the pedestrian injuries happened while the victim was crossing with the signal, according to DOT.
