    • The Site
      • Is located where the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (BQE) crosses Atlantic avenue.  The site is bordered by Atlantic on the North, Congress on the South, Columbia on the West and Hicks on the East.
      • BQE – for the purpose of our work the BQE will be moved below grade.  Above the path of the BQE will be an easement that is for a linear park.  There are entrance/exits to the BQE that need to be maintained.  On Atlantic we need to maintain the Northbound exit and on Columbia street we need to maintain the entrance/exits to southbound traffic.  You will need to ramp down to the roadway and we will as a class discuss the engineering of the site.
      • BIG Proposal for the BQE – follow this link and review the BIG proposal for the BQE – we will be incorporating this into our project.
