Intermittent Closures Planned for Both Directions

 

Intermittent, full closures at the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge’s Harlem River Lift Span to/from Manhattan are scheduled on Friday, Oct. 8, from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m. for bridge lifts to test mechanical functionality and allow completion of any routine preventative maintenance. 

Each closure lasts approximately 20 minutes. Motorists may experience delays and should consider an alternate route. 

Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at www.mymtaalerts.com for the latest information on this planned work.
