Since May, work on the Flatbush Avenue bridge has been progressing steadily. It is now clear how the streets are going to connect and it looks like the bulk of the roadway construction is done.
Looking from the gas station just north of the site, the view hasn’t changed all that much – it’s a bridge.
Walking back to the intersection of Flatbush and New Park Avenue, it looks like the road onto the bridge is just missing the connection to the street. When traveling east on Flatbush, drivers will go up over the bridge instead of taking the current road to the left of the new bridge.
Construction has also begun on the Fastrak station that will be adjacent to the new bridge. Here is the view looking north from the parking lot of the plaza containing the Apple Tree.
Finally, I have been irrationally concerned about the building at the corner of Flatbush and Newfield on the WalMart side of the train tracks. Will it stay? Will it go? It was still there in May, and it looked like the road would avoid the site. Well, now the building is gone.
