Brooklyn Heights Association’s “Future of the BQE” Survey Results Are Out

Update: According to Kirstyn Brendlen in the Brooklyn Paper the DOT has decided to delay repair work on the triple cantilever by conducting a traffic study before the environmental study instead of concurrently. The DOT says the cantilevered section will be safe, and “plans to begin some short-term repairs on the most-damaged sections of the Triple Cantilever this year to keep it safe and usable until 2028.”

You might recall that last month, the Brooklyn Heights Association conducted a survey to field the community’s opinions about how best to fix the thorny BQE problem. The survey data has been crunched and Mary Frost of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports on the results, along with reactions from BHA’s executive director Lara Birnback and local electeds.

Here is a snapshot of the community’s priorities according to the 500 responses.

We’re all looking forward to never having to hear the words “crumbling triple cantilever” in our anxiety daydreams again.

    Hard to argue with the survey results, for what they’re worth. I suspect we’ll have to wait for the next mayor before anything gets done here, unless it collapses or must be shut down in the meantime.
