The Promenade forms the top deck of the section of the BQE known as the “triple cantilever” (between Orange and Remsen Streets), which has unusual engineering characteristics – it is a “one of a kind” structure. A vertical wall, that also serves to hold back the earth behind it, supports the three cantilevered decks. A complex system of forces holds up the cantilevered decks and soil, and moving one of its parts affects the others. Thus, the BQE cannot be fixed without affecting the Promenade.

Scroll through the images to see key stages of the Triple Cantilever before, during, and after construction.
