Public Comments on the Kensington Expressway Redevelopment Project

The NYCLU submitted public comments on the route 33 (“Kensington Expressway”) redevelopment project. The NYCLU’s public comments highlight New York’s history of constructing highways that ripped through Black communities, the litany of harms endured by Black residents because of the construction of the Kensington Expressway, and the need for the NYSDOT to take a “hard look” at the impacts of the redevelopment plan. This includes conducting an Environmental Impact Statement to fully assess the impacts of this proposed project and creating a meaningful public participation process that targets and elevates the concerns of the majority Black residents that live adjacent to the proposed plan.



As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
