Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

No you shoukd judge it when it is complete. But when you pick and choose your data as DOT does, you can just make a failure appear to be a success. They can get away with this because there are not enough people asking questions. And when they do, they don't get answers. The media also accepts whatever DOT states as if it were gospel.

If you know anything about models, you know if garbage goes in garbage comes out. It's not like DOT has inspired confidence in the past with virtually every project behind schedule and most over budget. The Belt Parkway project is three years behind schedule. The should be completing the landscaping now, yet there are still unfinished bridges.

Yes it is difficult to make accurate traffic volume predictions, but other predictions are obvious like through traffic being forced to use the slow service lanes because of inadequate capacity on the main road during rush hours. It just stands to reason that if four lanes are inadequate during rush hours, three lanes will be less adequate. Traffic will be shifted to neighborhood streets and other already slow roadways like the Van Wyck and BQE, making travel slower for anyone in a car or truck.
