Drivers will face some lane closures on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway starting later this week, as two Woodside bridges get a face-lift.
Starting on or about Aug. 21 the city’s Department of Transportation will begin the steel cleaning and surface repainting of the 69th Street and Woodside Avenue bridges which cross over the BQE.
The work, which is expected to be completed by Oct. 31, will take place during daytime and nighttime hours with both single- and two-lane closures in each direction on the highway. The times of the closures will be the same for both bridges.
Two-lane closures on the BQE are scheduled Tuesday through Friday from 12:01 to 5 a.m.; Saturday from 12:01 to 6 a.m.; and Sunday 1 to 8 a.m.
Single-lane closures will occur Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.; Friday through Saturday 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.; and Sunday 12:01 a.m. to noon.
The work on the bridges is weather-dependent and the schedule may change as necessary, according to the DOT.
