The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) has decided to reduce the lanes from both sides of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) from three to two starting on Monday.
DOT explained the reduction of the lane is needed to reduce the impact on the 67-year-old road since they are not yet keen on repairing it now.
The DOT said they will repair the BQE road in the next 20 years.
Sources said the reduction of lanes will be done between Atlantic Avenue and the Brooklyn bridge.
Early this month, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio blamed the wear and tear of BQE on the freight trucks and other trucks that pass the road which was built in 1954.
To avoid further the use of BQE, de Blasio has also suggested is to use boats in transporting goods and deliveries instead of using the road.
