NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Starting Monday, forget about overnight travel into Manhattan on the Brooklyn Bridge, for a few years at least.

A $500 million rehabilitation project on the span will begin at 11 p.m. tomorrow.

Manhattan-bound lanes will be closed overnight for every night until 2014.

Crews will be expanding two ramps, replacing pavement and repainting steel to prevent corrosion.

It’s the first major reconstruction project on the Brooklyn Bridge in a decade.
