Full BQE Closure in Wee Hours this Sunday and Next

Further to our earlier post concerning repair and resurfacing work on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway from July 19 to 30, we’ve now been advised by the Brooklyn Heights Association that the BQE between the Atlantic Avenue and Tillary Street exits will be closed in both directions from 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. this Sunday, July 24 and the following, July 31.

Vehicles on the BQE will be rerouted with the help of traffic agents and electronic signs onto Atlantic Avenue, Court Street, Cadman Plaza West and Tillary Street. If possible, please avoid driving in these areas during those times.

Traffic during those hours isn’t likely to be anything like that in the photo (C. Scales for BHB).

    Another reason I don’t have a car…I expect traffic on Hicks and Henry Streets to also be horrendous.

    Did anyone notice any affect on the neighborhood streets from this closure?

    I exited the Brooklyn Bridge and traveled on Furman Street at around 1:30 a.m. and saw no impact at all.
