If we shut down the Skyway today, we'd free up $10M in local funds to put into this project.  Throw in state and federal matching funds and we could have this done in a handful of years.

Except shutting down the Skyway requires JTA to pay back $25 million in federal grants. Which not only wipes out your $10 million, but then requires pulling out another $15 million to end up with less.

I don't expect the end product to look anything like that. Eventually, the City will reconstruct Park Street in Brooklyn. Last year the DIA paid a consultant to start preliminary work and develop a scope on the Park Street road diet. Their recommendations do not match up to the renderings presented by Groundworks.  It doesn't look like Groundworks did much to coordinate with various stakeholders (particularly the private landowners that would be giving up their property within these renderings) when putting together these renderings. Right now, they are nothing more than that= renderings.

Welcome to Jacksonville, where nobody coordinates anything!
