Jackhammering on the BQE Now Scheduled to Start Next Monday; Delays Could Push Repairs into Next Spring

As reported by Mary Frost in The Eagle Friday and linked in a comment by Mary Kim to her earlier post, the start of repair work to the cantilevered parts of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway beneath Clark Street and beneath Grace Court was postponed for a second time, and is now scheduled to begin Monday, July 31. Delays are likely to delay completion of the project until the fall or possibly, since work must be suspended during the winter, into next spring. Ms. Frost’s story includes a detailed account of the measures that the contractor, Bove Industries, Inc., will take to minimize noise. She notes that during the first three weeks’ work both Queens bound lanes will be closed. During the first week Staten Island bound traffic will be reduced to one lane, but during the following two weeks both Staten Island bound lanes will be open.
