BP: Reinstate Studies on BQE And Gowanus

Borough President Marty Markowitz Thursday asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to override the state Department of Transportation’s (DOT’s) decision to terminate environmental impact studies for the “cantilever” section of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway near Brooklyn Heights and the elevated Gowanus Expressway in the southern part of the borough. Markowitz reminded the governor that the studies were ordered because these roadways were plagued with “insufficient capacity and structural decay.” If the studies are not performed, he said, plans for renovations can’t go forward, and these problems — as well as pollution — will only get worse.
