Grand Street Bridge in Maspeth, which connects Queens and Brooklyn, will undergo three weekends of repairs to fix underdeck stringers, a supporting mechanism for the bridge, according to the Department of Transportation.
The DOT will close the bridge to pedestrians and vehicular traffic in both directions between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from Nov. 7 to Nov. 22. Signs will be installed to alert motorists to the changes. Metropolitan Avenue may be used as an alternative route.
