BQE Rehab Prep to Begin Next Week

The Brooklyn Heights Association has notified us that, beginning next week and going for a three week period during the hours 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, you may see workers using a device “larger than a hand-held metal detector but smaller than a lawn mower” along the inner edge of the Promenade. The device is a “ground penetrating radar” and will be used to map the exact location of the highest and innermost wall of the BQE’s triple cantilever (see image by NYC DOT), all of which which will later be undergoing extensive repair and reconstruction. The Promenade will remain open during this surveying operation. It may result in damage to some plants along the edge of the Promenade Gardens, but “any damaged plant materials will be replaced.”
