NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – As part of the ongoing rehabilitation project on the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan-bound lanes will be closed for the weekend.
The New York City Department of Transportation announced the closure of the Manhattan-bound lanes from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 and from 9 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 25.
During these closures, all Manhattan-bound traffic will be redirected to alternate crossings, including the Manhattan Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge and the Hugh L. Carey Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel.
Brooklyn-bound traffic will continue to access the Brooklyn Bridge normally, the DOT said.
The partial span closure will allow for the installation of concrete pavement and the removal of most temporary construction plates on the Manhattan-bound roadway.
The span’s pedestrian path, bike path and pedestrian staircase at Frankfort Street in Manhattan will remain open, the DOT announced.
Motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible and use alternate routes.
