1,700 weak bolts replaced at new Barclays Center

It looks like the last of some 1,700 weak bolts have been cut out and replaced in the swooping canopy of the Barclays Center.

The incorrect bolts were discovered a month before the arena was set to open.

More than 1,700 bolts have been replaced — the last of them in December.

That’s about 8 percent of the 23,000 bolts holding the Barclays Center together.
