Portions of Brooklyn Bridge to Be Closed in Evenings

Monday, August 23, 2010

Starting Monday night, the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed for Manhattan-bound traffic overnight. During these closures, all inbound traffic will be diverted to other East River crossings, while pedestrians and cyclists will not be affected. The closure also doesn't affect car traffic heading into Brooklyn.

The Department of Transportation says the closure is so it can do "necessary rehabilitation and repainting work." The overnight closures are schedulded to last through 2014 and are part of the $508 million project to rehabilitate the bridge, which is funded partly with $30 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Manhattan-bound traffic will be closed:

Sundays to Fridays: 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Saturday: 12:01 a.m. to 7 a.m.

Sundays: 12:01 a.m. to 9 a.m.
