Brooklyn Bridge Closing Info

From The Brooklyn Heights Association a reminder about the planned closings of the Brooklyn Bridge:

Dear BHA Members:  We are writing to make sure you’re not caught off guard by the  overnight closures of all three  Manhattan-bound traffic lanes on the Brooklyn Bridge, starting tonight, Monday August 23rd.

On weekday nights the closing hours are 11 pm – 6 am;  on Saturday from midnight to 7 am, on Sunday from 11 pm to 9 am.
The bridge will reopen to traffic in both directions each morning.

All Manhattan-bound traffic will be detoured to the Manhattan Bridge or other crossings.

All Brooklyn-bound traffic will be maintained, and there will be no closure of the pedestrian/cycling

The closures are for the NYC DOT to carry out necessary rehabilitation work on the Bridge ramps and approaches.

Completion is slated for 2014.

For details about detour routes,see the DOT brochure at:,
or call Sabrina Lau at 347- 647-0876.

    I did the round trip last night, Drove to Manhattan at 11:30, back by midnight… wasn’t too bad, maybe a 5 minute addition to the drive…
