There will be some major traffic changes in Brooklyn Heights due to the rehabilitation of the Brooklyn Bridge. Two on-ramps on the Manhattan side of the bridge will be closed as of Monday, November 1, 2010. This change will last for three weeks and affect drivers heading towards Brooklyn.
Traffic will be rerouted towards a Pearl Street on-ramp during the closure period from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. according to the Department of Transportation (DOT). There will be nights when all three lanes heading to Manhattan will be closed for construction as well.
Some of these lanes will be inaccessible until 6 a.m. on weekdays and can affect residents who work in Manhattan. A complete schedule for Brooklyn Bridge ramp closures can be found here.
