LOWER MANHATTAN — The Vesey Street pedestrian bridge will be closed this weekend and on a handful of evenings this month, as the Port Authority makes safety improvements.
This weekend, the bridge will be shut down from 8 p.m. Oct. 15 to 5 a.m. Oct. 17, and it will also be closed other weekday nights throughout the month, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the Port said.
The Vesey Street bridge carries thousands of residents and commuters each day over West Street’s six lanes of traffic. When the bridge is shut down, the closest at-grade crossing will be at Murray Street, just to the north.
