Barriers Replaced After Open Street In Brooklyn Is Mistakenly Opened Up To Traffic

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A road for pedestrians and bicyclists in Brooklyn was unexpectedly opened up to vehicular traffic Thursday.

Residents noticed barriers were removed on Willoughby Avenue in Fort Greene, which is part of the Open Streets program.

The City Department of Transportation says it was due to a miscommunication.

Signs went back up and barriers were put back into place Thursday night.
