|Drawings of LIE at BQE facing east|
Here's Jeff's description of the drawing:
The top drawing is from the late 60's, before the construction began for the upper deck and not long after the SLECO bigloops replaced the eliptical armed poles and incandescent lights, that still graced the BQE. The westbound LIE exit for the southwest bound BQE indeed had a traffic light, and poles along the ramp sported little razor-like sensors that I assume were clocking traffic, probably in preparation for the reconstruction of this whole scene. The sensors were appended to normal eliptical crookarms. The brown stains at the top were from old Cellophane tape, which I used to connect reams of these legal pad sheets together. After I made a linked set of the newer LIE doubledeck setup, I disconnected the old version, of which the top view was part of, and spliced in the new version, below [see below].
