Transit Sam, week of Aug. 13, 2015

Thurs., Aug. 13 – Wed., Aug. 19


This is your last chance in 2015 to explore D.O.T.’s Summer Streets! If you haven’t made the trek already, be sure to; it’s terrific and quiet with no cars. Centre St. will close between the Brooklyn Bridge and Foley Square and Lafayette St. will close between Foley Square and Astor Pl. (and Park Ave. all the way up to E 72nd St.) 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

Manhattan-bound traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge will take the F.D.R. Drive or the Park Row South exit. The following crosstown streets will remain open to cars: Chambers, Reade, Worth, Canal, Broome, and Houston Sts.

On the Brooklyn Bridge, all Manhattan-bound lanes will close 11 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, midnight Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday and 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Wednesday nights. Drivers will instead take the Battery Tunnel and Manhattan Bridge, making for slowdowns on West St. and Canal St.

The Stone Street Pedestrian Mall will close Stone St. between Hanover Sq. and Broad St. and Mill Ln. between Stone and South William Sts. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day this week.

In the Lincoln Tunnel, one tube will close 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday. In the open tube, traffic will be maintained in both directions. This will send Manhattan-bound traffic down to the Holland Tunnel.

In the Holland Tunnel, one New York-bound lane and one New Jersey-bound lane will close 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday, slowing inbound traffic. Expect delays going into Canal St.
