Belt Parkway Lane Closures At Gerritsen Inlet Have Been Postponed



The Department of Transportation announced this morning that the Belt Parkway lane closures set to begin last night have been postponed indefinitely.

Two lanes of the eastbound Belt Parkway at Gerritsen Inlet Bridge were set to be closed for road repairs beginning last night and continuing through the weekend. A representative for the agency could not say what caused the postponement or when would would occur.

These closures are being done to facilitate the replacement of the bridge, which is part of the city’s Seven Bridges project, a large-scale renovation of seven spans on the Belt Parkway that began in 2009.

  1. I think someone should write a lede “Long awaited repairs to Belt Parkway street lights postponed forever”. Even the not-so-new DOT commish POLLY cannot get these knucleheads to fix the lighting on the BELT Pkwy. I have given up on local pols to get this fixed.
