NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Motorists can expect lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, Bayonne Bridge and Holland Tunnel this weekend and possibly next week due to ongoing construction and repair projects.

The closings, scheduled in conjunction with other regional agencies to minimize traffic impacts, are as follows:

For Staten Island residents: Overnight closures of Richmond Terrace between Nicholas Avenue and Morningstar Road will take place Mondays through Saturdays, from 9 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning, for the next several weeks. During this time, residents will have local access to Newark Avenue and John Street. These closures are required to safely allow for overhead roadway installation.
