Intermittent Closures Planned for Both Directions 

Intermittent, full closures at the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge’s Harlem River Lift Span to/from Manhattan are scheduled on Friday, Nov. 18, from 12:01 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. for bridge lifts to test mechanical functionality and allow routine preventative maintenance.   

Each closure lasts approximately 20 minutes. Customers traveling on the M60 bus, which offers service to LaGuardia Airport, should expect delays. Motorists may wish to consider an alternate route.    

The MTA encourages motorists and MTA bus customers to sign up for the MTA e-mail or text service alerts at http://www.mymtaalerts.com for the latest information on this planned work.
