FULL WEEKEND WESTBOUND CLOSURE PLANNING: Full 54-hour weekend westbound bridge closures will occur throughout 2014; exact details are posted here upon announcement. The next full-weekend closures dates are TBD. Read more here.
BIKE & PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC NOTE: The promenade will remain open throughout all phases of construction. In order to fully enclose railings and other components however, the paint removal containment units will reduce the width of the path by 1.5 feet on each side and be from 600 to 1000 feet long. For the safety of all bridge users, cyclists will be directed to dismount and walk through the work zone. As work progresses the units will move across the bridge until the project is complete.
Pedestrian and bicyclist managers are now posted on the Brooklyn Bridge.
