BROOKLYN - After three months of construction, two-way traffic on a part of Myrtle Avenue has been restored.

Cars will now be able to travel eastbound on Myrtle Avenue between Hall Street and Emerson Place. 

The three-month closure helped to accommodate construction of Myrtle Plaza.

At the end of the summer, the road will be closed again for paving.

Residents and business owners have had mixed feelings about the construction. 

In a statement to News 12, the Department of Design and Construction said it is "coordinating with the private utilities in the Myrtle Avenue Plaza area to complete paving of the roadway in a way least intrusive to residents."
