Work Begins On Restoring Brooklyn Bike Path...or just another patch job

Work Begins On Restoring Brooklyn Bike Path - NY1.com

(Excerpt)
Hurricane Sandy breached about 10 locations along the promenade when its surge came over the seawall. While these repairs will soon make the pathway safer for residents, community leaders warned that this is only a quick fix. They said that a permanent solution is needed.
"Right now, this is a temporary fix," said State Senator Marty Golden of Brooklyn. "This has been temporarily fixed now about 10 times. It's time to stop with the temporary fix before people really get injured and hurt and killed on this Belt Parkway."
