The closure will take place from 12:01 a.m. through 5:00 a.m. All traffic will be detoured to the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge during this time. The exception is the Q35 bus, which will have special arrangements for crossing.
Electronic signs will be placed along the Belt Parkway and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn and along Rockaway Point Blvd. and Beach Channel Drive in the Rockaways, notifying motorists to use the Cross Bay Bridge.
