Brooklyn voters to see new transportation plan on November ballot

The Pataki administration wants things to run full speed ahead for its mass transit proposal released Tuesday.

The $2.9 billion plan would improve highways, bridges and mass transit systems across New York through 2010. Some of the major projects to be renovated include bridge improvements in Brooklyn and the Gowanus Expressway Deck.

The project, which would be partly funded by the Transportation Bond Act, must first be approved by voters. The last proposed statewide Transportation Bond Act totaling $4 billion was rejected by voters in 2000.
