The New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) will soon begin the rehabilitation of the wall supporting the BQE along Hicks Street. The wall supports the exit ramp of Exit 28A of the Queens-bound BQE and provides access to downtown Brooklyn. The Hicks Street wall is a load bearing reinforced concrete wall and is roughly 548’ long, and up to 36’ high. The wall is deteriorated, missing brick veneer over 90% of its surface area with displaced and cracked coping at the interface between the safety railing and the wall. There are portions of unsound concrete showing spalls as deep as 6”, efflorescence, and missing mortar at the joints; exposed reinforcing steel; debonded reinforcing steel; and reinforcing steel with marked section loss. With the deficiencies noted above, the structural integrity of this wall is compromised, and immediate repair is warranted.
