This tunnel should be considered (see s DOT study link below). Per Arch Stanton on Bklyn Heights Blog, “The DOT did fairly extensive study which weighed the feasibility of several tunnel alternatives….one route was deemed feasible; a tunnel from Williamsburg to Sunset Park that would bypass this entire area. Such a tunnel would do away with much of the traffic traveling on the current route, which would then only be necessary for approaches to the bridges. The size of the roadway could be reduced to 2 lanes each way. Furthermore, the section through Cobble Hill and the Heights could potentially be eliminated if the bridge traffic were simply routed directly towards the tunnel. It would not only provide relief from the nightmare rebuild scenarios but also relief from the current traffic levels forever.”
