As reported in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, accessible pedestrian signals will be installed at a number of major intersections throughout Brooklyn to make the streets easier and safer for seniors and people with visual impairments. Notably, many of these devices will be in the downtown Brooklyn area. Perhaps of most relevance to the BHB community, there will be an accessible pedestrian signal installed at the corner of Court Street and Montague Street.
In Brooklyn, the intersections to get these devices will be:
• The Adams Street Pedestrian Crossing, mid-block between Fulton and Johnson streets.
• Nevins and Fulton streets at Flatbush Avenue, the eastern end of the busy Fulton Mall.
• Adams Street/Boerum Place and Livingston Streets, another very wide intersection.
• Adams Street and Atlantic Avenue.
• Bedford Avenue between Avenue I and Campus Road, near Brooklyn College.
• Court and Montague streets, a high-volume intersection near the courthouse complex.
• Adams and Fulton Streets, the western end of the Fulton Mall.
