Street Closures, Traffic Delays for Columbus Day Weekend

If you're traveling for the long Columbus Day weekend, be aware of these delays.


The New York City Police Department announced street closures and anticipated traffic delays for this weekend. Drivers should expect delays in the following areas:

 

Brooklyn Bridge Weekend Closure

All Manhattan-bound lanes closed for next two weekends from Friday, Oct. 5 at 11:59 p.m. until Monday, Oct. 8 at 6 a.m., and Friday Oct 12 at 11:59 p.m. until Monday Oct. 15 at 6 a.m. 

Brooklyn-bound access to the bridge will be maintained via ramps from Pearl Street & Center Street onto the contra-flow lanes.

There will be additional Brooklyn-bound access to the bridge via the Park Row ramp from Frankfort Street on both weekends Saturday to Sunday.

To accommodate detoured traffic, additional lanes will be available for Manhattan-bound motorists on the Manhattan Bridge. 

NYCDOT will install temporary signage and adjust traffic signal timing to assist motorists navigate the detour area, and coordinate with NYPD to deploy Traffic Control Agents at key intersections.

These closures will allow for the restoration of two full traffic lanes on the Brooklyn-bound ramp adjacent to Pace University. 

Motorists are urged to avoid the area and use alternate routes.
