There will be overnight closures on the RFK Bridge Manhattan/Queens ramp for two weeks starting on Monday, Feb. 24.

Beginning Monday, Feb. 24, there will be multiple, intermittent closures of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge ramp leading from Manhattan to Queens between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for approximately two weeks, according to the MTA.

The closures will last for about 5 to 10 minutes and are dependent on good weather.

According to the MTA, the closures are needed to move steel beams in place using large cranes. The work is part of a$50 million project to reconstruct the 54,000-square-foot ramp, which was built in 1967. It also includes removing the old concrete deck, replacing the steel support stringers and adding a new concrete deck.

Work is expected to be completed this fall, the transit agency said.
