Maspeth’s Grand Street Bridge to be shut for repairs on weekends

By Gabriel Rom

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.
