Brooklyn Bridge

Due to the Brooklyn Bridge Ramps Rehabilitation Project, several lane closures may affect motorists travelling between Manhattan and Brooklyn. One of three Brooklyn-bound lanes will generally be closed during weekdays from 6 am to 3 pm in order to facilitate long term bridge construction.

Local streets may experience single lane closures as needed and Manhattan-bound lane closures continue overnight throughout the duration of the project. Any other closures, including Manhattan-bound closures that extend into daytime hours during selected weekends, will be highlighted below.

Brooklyn-bound traffic will be maintained throughout the project as will the span’s pedestrian and cycling path. During Manhattan-bound closures, motorists will be detoured to the nearby Manhattan Bridge or may choose other crossings.

Unless otherwise notified of specific occurrences, nighttime closures will occur as follows:

  • Overnight Detours for Manhattan-Bound Traffic
  • Friday night/Saturday morning Midnight* to 7 am
  • Monday – Thursday nights: 11 pm* to 6 am

To allow traffic to clear before the reversal begins, the eastbound BQE exit onto the bridge closes 30 minutes earlier, the northbound FDR Drive exits close up to an hour earlier, and other Brooklyn ramps onto the bridge shut down 5-15 minutes earlier.
