Marine Park Bridge Travel Advisory

Text: T T

There will be multiple daily bridge lifts at the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge beginning Wednesday, August 29 through October as a result of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ marsh islands restoration project in Jamaica Bay.

The lifts, which will take place around-theclock, require full periodic closures of the bridge. It takes approximately15 minutes to raise and lower the bridge. Motorists are advised to use the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge as an alternate. Federal code requires MTA Bridges and Tunnels to comply with bridge lift requests to allow large marine vessels to cross.
