Beginning Monday, Feb. 24, there will be multiple, intermittent closures of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge ramp leading from Manhattan to Queens between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for approximately two weeks, according to the MTA.
The closures will last for about 5 to 10 minutes and are dependent on good weather.
According to the MTA, the closures are needed to move steel beams in place using large cranes. The work is part of a$50 million project to reconstruct the 54,000-square-foot ramp, which was built in 1967. It also includes removing the old concrete deck, replacing the steel support stringers and adding a new concrete deck.
Work is expected to be completed this fall, the transit agency said.
