Mayor Announces Plans for BQE

Aug 4

Eighteen months after his expert panel submitted recommendations, and four weeks after we published an op-ed in the NY Daily News, Mayor de Blasio has announced plans for the short-term repair of the Triple Cantilever. The proposed measures will maintain the structure long enough to allow for the development of a long-term vision for the future of the entire corridor.

DOT’s plans for the shoring up of the cantilever include implementation of measures to stop water infiltration and slow down corrosion, reduce the lanes from six to four, expand monitoring of the structure’s health, and install weigh-in-motion technology to reduce overweight trucks on the structure (pending final approval from the Governor). These measures will extend the life of the structure for 20 years.Read More…

Don’t Let the BQE become the next Champlain Towers!

Jul 8

The BHA has been working with our fellow members of the Coalition for the BQE Transformation to keep the BQE at the top of the agenda for New York City and State lawmakers. Like you, we have been waiting for months for the city to release a plan outlining what it is doing to keep motorists and pedestrians safe on the cantilever, while simultaneously laying the foundation for a longer-term transformation of the BQE corridor. We are tired of waiting and fearful about the potential consequences of doing so much longer. 

Erika Belsey Worth, BHA President, co-authored this Op-Ed which is featured in the NY Daily News online today (PDF file of Op-Ed). We hope the Mayor and the Governor will listen.
