Bridge Construction Projects Halted Over Holiday Weekend
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Two New York-area bridges will be easier to cross this Labor Day weekend.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says construction on the George Washington Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing was suspended Friday and won’t resume until Tuesday.
Overnight construction on the George Washington Bridge has closed off three of four lanes on the upper level during weeknights as part of a joint panel replacement project. The Outerbridge Crossing connecting New Jersey and Staten Island has been closed overnight for repaving.
Construction on both bridges will resume Tuesday night. Work on the Outerbridge is scheduled to be completed in October, while the George Washington Bridge project is expected to last through the end of the year.
