Our friends at the Brooklyn Heights Association let us know that tomorrow, Wednesday, November 16, starting at 5:30 PM, “DOT will hold an online meeting for the Brooklyn Heights Community to outline their plans for repairs [to the BQE] and explain the anticipated impact on the neighborhood.” The discussion will concern the “repair” phase of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway project, not the longer range plans for the BQE’s future (or non-future). If you want to participate, just copy and go to this link at 5:30 PM: https://zoom.us/j/91458445893?pwd=RnYzb0thVGlpSFhpSEN4ekUxZk1lUT09 — the meeting ID is 914 5844 5893 and the passcode is 035948. The DOT’s prepared presentation is here.
There will be two meetings in December on the long range plans for the BQE. There will be an in-person meeting, location to be announced, on Tuesday, December 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, and an on line meeting during the same hours on Thursday, December 15. We will give you more information on these meetings when it is available.
