Don’t get stuck in Queens after the sun goes down!

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will close the Marine Parkway Bridge overnights Oct. 16–28.

Workers will shut the bridge from 10 pm to 5 am every day except Saturday, Oct. 22, for lift tests, according to a statement from the authority.

Officials are suggesting drivers use the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge as an alternative.

Motorists can sign up for e-mail or text alerts at www.mta.info and check the Bridges and Tunnels home page or Facebook page for the latest information on this planned work.
