East 8th St. Bridge Reconstruction Begins Next Week

The reconstruction of the East 8th Street Bridge (a.k.a. Guider Avenue Bridge) over the Belt Parkway will kick off “on or about February 17.” As we noted last week, the Belt Parkway will see closures, including periodic 15-minute open-close intervals, as the contractor sees fit. The document below, circulated by the DOT and sent to us by Community Board 15, says the new bridge will have a 75-year life and will be completed May 2011.
