BROOKLYN — A worker injured his leg when he fell 15 feet from a catwalk and onto a support beam of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Monday afternoon, officials said.
The worker, whose name wasn't immediately released, was on the catwalk beneath the bridge's upper level when he tumbled onto the beam about five minutes after noon, according to MTA and FDNY officials said.
He was treated at Lutheran Hospital, officials said. He was conscious when he was transported, but his condition wasn't immediately clear, officials said.
The worker had been helping replace the upper level's roadway, according to an MTA spokesman.
Service on the bridge was briefly disrupted as MTA and FDNY crews worked to rescue the man, but regular service had resumed by 2:45 p.m., according to the authority's website.
