Envisioning the Future The BQE Triple Cantilever Project

4. Conclusions

4.1. Next Steps

The impartial examination of the project by National transportation experts helped refine the scope of the BQE project: the solutions presented during the workshop reinforced some of the original design concepts and provided new direction for other aspects of the project.

NYSDOT is evaluating the recommendations from all the skill sets and will determine which ideas or suggestions will be incorporated into the BQE "triple cantilever" project. Key ideas under consideration include the following:

  • Utilizing temporary bridges.
  • Double decking the BQE at Old Fulton Street.
  • Using Furman Street as a detour.
  • Studying potential re-alignment at the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Using pre-fabricated bridge units.
  • Forming a community advisory group early in the process.
