NYSDOTNYSDOT New York State Department of Transportation Comment (#5)

To The New York State Department of Transportation

  • I do NOT want toxic exhaust plumes directed out tunnel ends toward our neighborhoods, schools, churches, and community centers.
  • I do NOT want a tunnel that does not comply with Climate Leadership and Community Protection ActClimate Leadership and Community Protection Act, also known as CLCPA. The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) is a plan signed into law on July 18, 2019[1] to address climate change and reach net zero emissions in New York State. (CLCPA) mandates.
  • I do NOT want blasting to take place for tunnel construction, and I am concerned about asbestos containment.
  • I do NOT want this expressway to cut through our neighborhoods—period!
  • I DO want improved air quality for all Humboldt Parkway and nearby residents, in order to provide a healthier future for our children and grandchildren.
  • I DO want a project that complies with all CLCPA mandates, and rightfully considers additional alternatives to “build” and “no build,” including expressway removal.
  • I DO want an Environmental Impact StatementEnvironmental Impact Statement Definition to come. (EISEnvironmental Impact Statement Definition to come.) for this project, that rightfully considers additional alternatives and engages our communities in the process.
  • I DO want to see the full restoration of Humboldt Parkway from MLKMLK Park Martin Luther King Park, formerly Humboldt Park. Jr. Park to Delaware Park.
