A Message from the Director
In May 2012 Empire State Development (ESD) hosted a public meeting to share the proposed Transportation Demand Management Plan (TDM) that was developed by Sam Schwartz at the request of Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC). Based on community input received at the public meeting the TDM Plan was revised. Shortly before the Barclays Center opened the Plan was implemented. Per the Final Environmental Impact Study, the Plan is required to reduce the number of vehicles traveling to the arena, and FCRC is required to study the effectiveness of the Plan after implementation.
On June 13th, 2013 at the Brooklyn Hospital Center Auditorium representatives of Forest City Ratner Companies and Sam Schwartz Engineering shared the effectiveness of the TDM Plan with the public. The results of the study have been posted here. The study characterizes the travel patterns of arena patrons and confirms that the TDM Plan was successful in meeting the established goals.
Traffic patterns will continue to be monitored by City DOT, NYPD, FCRC and ESD, but for the time being we are satisfied with the effectiveness of the Plan to reduce traffic. Your input continues to be crucial as we oversee the Atlantic Yards Project. If you would like to receive information about the Atlantic Yards project, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for visiting ESD’s Atlantic Yards website and we look forward to sharing more information about the Project as it becomes available.
