bqeAug. 18, 2015 By Michael Florio

The DOT will be spending the next 10 weeks painting two Woodside bridges that go over the Brooklyn Queens Expressway– a job that will require lane closures on the BQE.

The DOT will begin the project on the 69th Street Bridge and the Woodside Avenue Bridge starting Friday. The DOT expects the work, which will require lane closures on the BQE in each direction, to be completed by October 31st.

The DOT will close a single lane in both directions at the following times:

–Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3 pm and 10:30 pm to 5 am

–Friday through Saturday from 11 pm to 6 am

–Sunday from 12:01 am to 12 pm

It will close two-lanes on the BQE at the following times:

–Tuesday through Friday from 12:01 am to 5 am

–Saturdays from 12:01 am to 6 am (two lanes only if needed)

–Sundays from 12 am to 8 am (two lanes only if needed)

The two-lane closures on the weekends may be cut back to one lane depending on the work being conducted at that given time, according to Nancy Catapano, Community Liaison with the DOT.

The work is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change if necessary, according to the DOT.
