Resurfacing of Outerbridge Crossing Will Force it to Close in July
STATEN ISLAND — Resurfacing work at the Outerbridge Crossing will close the bridge every weeknight through the summer, the Port Authority said.
Repaving of the bridge will start on July 9 and continue until sometime in October, said Chris Valens, a spokesman for the agency.
Throughout the summer, the bridge will be closed on Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., and Fridays from 11:59 p.m. to 7 a.m., Valens said.
“Closing the bridge will allow us to complete the work this year, so the bridge will be open during 2014 when construction on the Bayonne Bridge, Goethals Bridge, Pulaski Skyway and Verrazano Bridge is expected to take place,” Valens said.
Work on all three bridges will cost $2.8 million and is expected to be completed by 2017.
