Many BHB readers have asked about Squibb Park Bridge, which has been closed – ostensibly due to the construction of the Pierhouse – for the last few weeks. Now comes word from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Belinda Cape that there’s another issue as well:
Warping of the bridge is expected from time to time due to use and temp fluctuations and requires the re-adjustment of cable tensions. During the most recent adjustments last month, our bridge engineers registered greater movement than usual at one of the spans. The bridge was closed in order to conduct more intensive monitoring, as well as find the cause for this movement.
We expect necessary adjustments to be made and the bridge to reopen in the next 2-3 weeks.
