‘Fix the BQE Ditch?’ You’re Out of Luck!

Remember those drawings of attractive proposals to redesign the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in the area of the Carroll Gardens “ditch?” Well, they’ve been put on hold indefinitely. The state Department of Transportation (DOT) sent out an e-mail Tuesday stating that it is terminating the environmental study of the BQE.

“In these financially difficult times,” reads the e-mail, “NYSDOT is making strategic choices to make the best use of our limited resources … The alternatives being explored in the environmental study far exceed the financial resources available to us now and for the foreseeable future.”
