Manhattan Bound Brooklyn Bridge Closed Again Tomorrow and Next Sunday

Once again, Notify NYC reminds us that rehabilitation work on the Brooklyn Bridge necessitates closing the Manhattan bound lanes of the Bridge starting at midnight tonight and continuing through tomorrow (Sunday, August 4) until 5:00 a.m. Monday. This will happen again next weekend, with the Manhattan bound lanes closed from midnight through Sunday, August 11 to 5:00 a.m. Monday, August 12.

    Please get your facts straight. The bridge is closed in Both directions, not just manhattan bound.

    According to Notify NYC it’s Manhattan-bound only. I just got this from the DOT official website:

    Starting 12:01 am Sunday August 4 until 6 am Monday August 5 the Brooklyn Bridge will be closed to inbound/westbound traffic. Motorists proceeding inbound/northbound from south Brooklyn via the Belt Parkway and Gowanus Expressway should use 3rd Avenue/Hamilton Avenue into the toll facility Hugh L. Carey (formerly Brooklyn Battery) Tunnel as the best route into lower Manhattan. Motorists proceeding inbound/westbound from Queens/Long Island should consider the Williamsburg Bridge, or the toll facilities at the Robert F Kennedy Bridge or Queens Midtown Tunnel, for best route into Manhattan. Throughout this closure the Manhattan Bridge will accommodate 5 lanes of traffic inbound/westbound and two lanes outbound/eastbound.

    So it’s westbound (Manhattan-bound) only. If you have better info, please let me know.

    These closures (for the four-year-long rehabilitation project) have NEVER included both sides of the bridge. Usually when they close the Manhattan-bound side, they will direct Brooklyn-bound traffic over that side, but not always. Get YOUR facts straight.
