The Preposterous Pace of BQE Reconstruction

Here is what is happening to BQE reconstruction (quoting the Cobble Hill Association):

BQE Rehabilitation website

Here is the link to the DOT's BQE Rehabilitation website:
https://www.nysdot.gov/bqedowntownbrooklyn

Accoording to their preposterous timetable:

'The current status of the project is In Development.
Project Development began in Fall 1997.
The Bid Opening is expected to be in Summer 2017.
Construction is expected to begin in Summer 2017.
Construction is expected to be completed in Summer 2020.'

Let's hope we're all alive in 2020 when they finish construction.

Well, pace the Cobble Hill Association, the one thing that is certain about the human life span is that we will not ALL be alive in 2020. And for those of us now over 80, the chance is substantially less than even.

Wow! i cant believe there is a blog on this spot! i've been driving in Bklyn for 20 years and i hate to pass this exit because I always knew how dangerous it is. I try and stay in the middle lane as i pass it. and I especially hate it if i have to use that on ramp to the BQE. I really do hope the city does something about it.

last night i witnessed a 3 car rear end accident right next to me. these drivers are going way too fast for the BQE.

anyway, i'll be catching up on all of your blog postings.
