Queensboro Bridge Lane Closures Begin For 2-Year Repair Project

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Several lanes on the Queensboro Bridge have been shut down to begin a two-year repair project.

The closures started 9 p.m. Friday.

Both Queens-bound lanes on the bridge's upper level will be closed overnight.

On Monday, one Manhattan-bound lane on the upper level will be closed, and the second Manhattan-bound lane will be closed during off-peak hours.

To help traffic during the off-peak closures, one of the existing Queens-bound lanes on the upper level will be reversed for traffic heading into Manhattan.
