NYC DOT Seeks Public Comments, Suggestions Concerning BQE Repairs

We noted earlier that the New York State Legislature, which has an unfortunate stranglehold on many matters affecting New York City alone, in its recent session failed to pass the legislation required to expedite the urgently needed work to repair the cantilevered portion of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway that runs below Brooklyn Heights and the Promenade. We now have word, thanks to the Brooklyn Heights Association, that the New York City Department of Transportation has invited members of the public to comment or offer suggestions concerning the project during the approximately eighteen months that DOT will undertake a public planning process for the BQE repairs. Comments, questions, or suggestions may be sent to or by phone to 212-839-6304.

The possibility remains open that the “Design/Build” option, which would greatly expedite and reduce the cost of the project, will be approved in the next legislative session.
