DEIS: Traffic concerns; Construction impacts


Draft EIS states:

A scenario in which construction workers would be provided with parking at one of the Yankee Stadium garages was evaluated, as was a scenario in which construction workers would instead park in on-street parking spaces. The analysis concludes that there would be significant adverse traffic impacts under both scenarios, for which only partial mitigation has been identified at this time.


Again, another reason to support public transit. If parking and traffic continue to be issues that are only aggravated by construction workers, why is the solution always just to add more parking or ignore the potential of public transportation to serve both construction workers and fans?
