The NYC Department of Transportation Division of Bridges will test the Willis Avenue Bridge’s hydraulic drive. As a result, intermittent 15-minute closures will take place week nights from Monday, March 20 until Friday, April 7, 2017 between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.
Each test may occur only after the previous full test is concluded and any queue of traffic is dissipated. Testing requires a complete closure of the bridge to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic during lifts.
