By Queens Courier Staff | |


The Bronx-Whitestone Bridge will temporarily close overnight on Friday and Saturday.

The Bronx-Whitestone Bridge will be closed in both directions for approximately 15 minutes on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6 for the installation and removal of overhead sign structures, said the MTA.

On Friday, the closure will take place between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., and between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Saturday.

One lane will also be closed in each direction on Thursday, April 4 at 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. on Friday, April 5 and from 12:01 a.m. until noon on Saturday, April 6.

Because of possible delays, drivers should consider using the Throgs Neck Bridge as an alternative route. The work is dependent on good weather.
