BQE Cadman Plaza Exit to Close Monday Until August

Our friends at Montague Street BID have advised us that, starting this coming Monday, March 29, and continuing until August, the Cadman Plaza exit from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, which serves northbound traffic, will be closed while the Hicks Street wall that borders the ramp is repaired. This may also lead to some construction noise in the North Heights. Those coming from the south on the BQE who would normally exit at Cadman Plaza are advised to take the Atlantic Avenue exit, then turn left onto Furman Street and follow it to Old Fulton.

    A side effect of the closure is the possibility of damage to the Poplar Street triangle garden, which is next to the wall that will be repaired.

    That would be most unfortunate.

    I walked by the garden Thursday. A man repainting the beehive box told me their only interaction with DOT so far was severe trimming of the pine tree there. He showed me where branches were chainsawed off, leaving sap oozing from the new cuts.

    They apparently asked that a tree-trimmer from the Parks Dept. do the job, but were refused.
