What have you learned?

[The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway was completed in 1964 and it costed appromixately $137 million, including construction, land, and relocation costs.Some interesting present news about the BQE is that there is an art project being installed on the lower and upper tiers on the BQE. The upper tiers will have a pattern of trees with the top bronze part representing the sky and planetary system. The lower bronze band tier will have underground life such as roots, worms, and ancient fossils which will captivate the attention of children walking by. I learned that this installation process will take only six weeks which is good because even now people can pass by a take a look at the progress.]
