BREAKING: All Belt Parkway Lanes Closed, Mill Basin Drawbridge Stuck In Up Position (UPDATED – Lanes Reopened)

We just received word (12:25 p.m.) from the city’s notification system that all lanes on the Belt Parkway are closed, as a mechanical snafu at the Mill Basin Drawbridge has it stuck in the up position.

Expect heavy traffic delays and seek alternate routes.

We will update as more information becomes available.

UPDATE (2:10 p.m.): The bridge is down and all lanes reopened.
