Two lanes of the eastbound Belt Parkway at Gerritsen Inlet Bridge will be closed for road repairs beginning tonight and lasting through the weekend.

The first lane, between Exit 9 and Exit 11, will close at 10pm tonight, followed by a second lane at 1am. During the closure, one lane will remain open to traffic at all times, and all lanes will reopen at 5am.

Weather permitting, this pattern will continue each night for approximately five nights, according to the Department of Transportation.

These closures are being done to facilitate the replacement of the bridge, which is part of the city’s Seven Bridges project, a large-scale renovation of seven spans on the Belt Parkway that began in 2009.

    They are doing a decent job on the BELT repairs, but they just cannot seem to get those street lamps to work on the parkway between Knapp Street and the Bk-Qns border. Shame on DoT and not-so new Commissioner Polly.

    So much potential wasted. More then enough room to expand the belt to 4 or 5 lanes on each side.

      Totally agreed. Cannot believe this project is also still going on. Its been 5 years now. Adding lanes would have been smart. The concrete instead of asphalt was also a good thing.
