A second truck fire in about two weeks shut down traffic on the lower level of the Queensboro Bridge on Monday, September 2.

A truck fire disrupted traffic on the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge for the second time in about two weeks.

The FDNY responded to the blaze on the bridge’s lower level around 9:47 a.m. Monday, said an FDNY spokesperson, and had the fire under control by approximately 10:14 a.m. No injuries were been reported.

The bridge’s lower level was closed in both directions, but was reopened by around 3 p.m.

On August 16, another truck fire closed the bridge for a few hours.

Updated Monday, September 1, 3:12 p.m.
