Two days ago, I wrote about a travel advisory which would lead to intermittent delays on the Q21 & Q53. The maintenance work on the Cross Bay Memorial Bridge which was scheduled for today & tomorrow has been postponed. MTA NYC Transit & Bus Company have issued a press release with new times for the work:
Due to problems with equipment availability, MTA Bus officials announced that the maintenance work scheduled for Wednesday, February 3, Thursday, February 4 and Friday, February 5 on the Cross Bay Bridge is postponed.
The intermittent closures will now take place on Wednesday, February 10, Thursday, February 11 and Friday, February 12. All northbound lanes of the Cross Bay Bridge will be closed for 20 minute intervals between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on those three days. These closures will affect all traffic traveling to Broad Channel from the Rockaways. Q53 and Q21 customers should expect delays and plan accordingly.
