A message from your friendly DOT community Liaison to all Canarsie-area commuters. Yes, this is part of the Seven Bridges Project:

Beginning the week of April 19, 2010 the New York City Department of Transportation, Division of Bridges will begin major work on The Belt Parkway Bridge over Rockaway Parkway. This work includes installation of a water main, abutment and center pier work. During this work there will be one lane open on Rockaway Parkway under the Belt Parkway in both the northbound and southbound direction. The expected duration of this work is approximately three years. Vehicular and pedestrian and bicycle access to Canarsie Pier will be maintained at all times. During construction, traffic on the Belt Parkway will NOT be detoured onto local streets.
