Our friends at the Brooklyn Heights Association have alerted us that on this Tuesday, September 14, starting at 6:00 PM, staff from the City’s Department of Transportation will present their plan for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to a meeting of the Transportation Committee of Community Board 2. The meeting will be held on line; to log on to the meeting go to CB 2’s calendar page and click on Tuesday, September 14 where it says “6pm CB2 – Transport.”
The BHA notes that work on the BQE’s Hicks Street wall “is nearing completion and should be finished this fall” and that “we are pleased by the responsiveness and general care taken to minimize neighborhood impact.” If you live in the affected area, has this been your experience? They also note that, following the reduction of the BQE from three lanes to two between Atlantic Avenue and the Brooklyn Bridge, “what we haven’t observed is an increase of trucks or cars on our neighborhood streets – let us know what you are seeing!”
