Belt Parkway Hit With More Lane Closures

UPDATE #2: (3/10/10 2:31 p.m.) We just got word from the Community Outreach Liason for the Seven Bridges Project that our assumption was incorrect: ALL THREE PROJECTS ARE RUNNING SIMULTANEOUSLY. That means THERE ARE THREE SECTIONS OF THE BELT PARKWAY EXPERIENCING LANE CLOSURES. The schedule for lane closures on all three projects are posted below.

UPDATE: (3/8/10 1:00 p.m.) Due to emergency pothole repairs between Pennsylvania Avenue and the Mill Basin Bridge, work on the Seven Bridges Project has been suspended. In addition to the two projects, emergency pothole repairs are being done between Pennsylvania Avenue and the Mill Basin Bridge, spurring additional lane closures. We are in the process of confirming which lane closures are currently in effect, but to the best of our knowledge b Beginning tonight a third set of lane closures (also below) are being put in place. , while the Seven Bridges lane closures are temporarily terminated. The pothole repairs are expected to continue until March 22.

Original post

More precise lane closure information was released last week regarding the East 8th Street/Guider Avenue Bridge reconstruction. Previously, we heard somewhat conflicting reports of when and how lanes would be closed, but the following information comes from the Department of Transportation (via Community Board 15). These closures, of course, are occurring simultaneously to closures related to the Seven Bridges Project. I’ve included the schedule for those closures as well, so that you can find the information all in one place.
