Please end the MTA's destructive proposal to destory the Kings Highway
community with its proposed SBS B82 exclussive lanes on Kings Highway
between McDonald Avenue and Ocean Avenue. These streets are not wide
enough, even if you remove the parking, to handle these double buses.
It only makes sense for that bus line to go through Avenue P, if it
should exist at all.
The connection to the Brighton Line subway would be exactly half a city
block, to the Brighton Line and is not a problem for walking at all.
The Culver has an Avenue P station. The Sea-Beach connection is
absolutely redundant not necessary for an express service that connects
Canarsie to Coney Island because all the significant destinations are
covered by the F,B, and Q train. The N train station should be left
alone with it's local use profile.
This was how the grid was DESIGNED to work when Kings Highway was
widened in the 1920s. It was designed to use Avenue P as a bypass for
the Kings Highway Brighton line area, which was known as South
Greenfield, because of its smalltown like grid, and run around it
through Avenue P. The size and width of Avenue P makes no sense accept
as it was designed to connect to the broader Kings Highway Roadway
starting at Ocean Avenue and going East, a throughway which is
artifiically and currently blocked.
We need urgent and immediate action on this matter to protect the
community. This is not an issue to hand off to a junion staff member in
order to do outreach. The MTA is planning on this now and claims to
have DOT permits to start in June
