BROOKLYN - Construction is scheduled to begin on the Myrtle Avenue pedestrian plaza in Clinton Hill.

The state-of-the-art plaza will include a new bus stop, dozens of new trees, a water fountain, a permanent art installation and movable tables and chairs.  

The 25,000-square foot project, which has been in the works since 2008, will run from Myrtle Avenue to Emerson Street.

A groundbreaking is expected to take place this summer.  The city expects pedestrians can begin enjoying the plaza about a year later.
