DOT Reworks Cadman Plaza West Sidewalk


It’s not only the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge that’s getting attention from the DOT. The stretch of Cadman Plaza around the exit ramp that drivers take to access the BQE is being made more pedestrian-friendly as we write. A curb extension (or “neckdown”) is being added at the southeast corner of Middagh Street and Cadman Plaza West while an entirely new sidewalk is being installed between Middagh and where the exit ramp feeds out to Old Fulton Street. Right now a pedestrian has no way to safely continue down the east side of Cadman Plaza West towards the Brooklyn Bridge underpass. These changes should help address that.
