FORT LEE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — One of the most heavily-traveled bridges in the country is getting a face-lift, which might leave motorists little to smile about.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said it will need to close three lanes at a time in the same direction on the upper deck of the George Washington Bridge starting Monday night. Only one lane will be open in that direction.
The closures will alternate between the eastbound and westbound sides through year’s end.
The closures will occur only overnight, but the Port Authority said it’s expecting delays of 45 minutes to an hour.
