BROOKLYN - Drivers on Flatbush Avenue saw a road sign that fired foul language at a developer of the Atlantic Yards project Tuesday morning.

Drivers say the sign once read ?5th Avenue closed.? It is one of the many roads being permanently shut down due to the development of a new business complex and basketball arena in the area.

The Department of Transportation says it believes a hacker changed the system overnight.
