New York City Department of Transportation finished demolishing the concrete deck on the Guider Avenue / East 8th Street Bridge, exposing the steel superstructure.

According to a DOT project alert, the superstructure will be dismantled and removed throughout May. Once gone, the concrete piers will finally be taken away.

The work demands a temporary realignment of travel lanes on both sides of the Belt Parkway.

The city expects the project to be completed by May 2011.

    I wonder if the city has thought about just removing this “bridge” all together. It's really nothing more than an on ramp to the belt parkway. Do we really need it?

    Yeah we do. Its also used by pedestrians and is the easiest and fastest way to go from CIA to OP from this area. While they are there they should put back the west bound on ramp from OP that was taken away for no reason a few years back when they changed the on and off ramp from the east bound belt.
