Earlier today, MTA NYC Transit announced that 5 Brooklyn bus routes will be rerouted due to Phase I of the Fulton Mall Reconstruction Project. Here are the complete details courtesy of the press release I received:
Beginning Monday, July 12, the Fulton Mall between Boerum Place/Adams Street and Smith/Jay Streets will be closed in both directions for construction for approximately two weeks, the first phase in the Fulton Mall Reconstruction Project. As a result of this work, which is being done by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), several bus routes will be rerouted off Fulton Street.
The B25, B38 & B52 buses will be detoured off Fulton Street onto Livingston Street in the vicinity, and will make corresponding bus stops on Livingston Street. Also, a new bus stop will be installed on Lafayette Avenue at St. Felix Street (between St. Felix Street and Fort Green Place) for these buses.
In addition, the B61/B65 terminal at Smith Street will be moved one block south between Schermerhorn and Livingston Streets.
The B26 and B54 routes will remain on the Fulton Mall during this phase.
