Two of three southbound Queens-bound lanes on the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge will be closed to traffic nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Friday night into Saturday while a new steel girder is installed at the Bronx approach of the bridge.

Motorists are advised that delays are possible. The Throgs Neck Bridge may be used as an alternate. All work is dependent upon good weather. The installation of the final, new steel girder at the Bronx approach is expected to be completed by March 23, weather permitting.

LEts make sure the simpletons at MTA close the bridge down to 1 lane during the height of vacation season in July just like they always do. Clueless governmental drones!
