(August 2, 2013) — Starting tonight, August 2, Newfield Avenue will be closed from Flatbush Avenue to Charter Oak Marketplace Drive, in order to accommodate construction for Stage 2 of CTfastrak’s Flatbush Avenue reconstruction project.
For approximately the next eleven weeks, all Newfield Avenue traffic between Flatbush and Charter Oak Marketplace will be detoured onto Charter Oak Marketplace Drive.
