    Re: Gowanus Tunnel, this info has been on the state DOT site for a while. I don’t think NYC Roads has anything new.

    and you have to love the title of one of the reports cited, “How to Build Our Way Out of Congestion”. Yeah, that’ll work.

  • Thanks, Lee, that’s a much better Gowanus link.

    How twisted is it that my first thought upon hearing about the Minneapolis thing was, “Gowanus Expressway 2012?”

    Occupational hazard of editing Streetsblog and living in Brooklyn, I guess.

    “Does that guy see me? I dunno, the windows are too effing dark!”

    I hate tinted windows. Every cyclist in the city should get behind this cause. Wow, a place where cops and cyclists meet for a common cause. I guess I never thought of cops as vulnerable road users before.
