Part of a major route in New York City will be closed this weekend.
A section of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (Interstate 278) will be closed starting at 2 a.m. Saturday, and reopen at 4 a.m. Monday.
The closure is necessary for repairs, which are part of a bigger project for the highway.
The New York City Department of Transportation said:
- Queens-bound BQE will be fully closed from Atlantic Avenue to Sands Street
- Staten Island-bound BQE will be partially closed with only one lane available; the Vine Street/Old Fulton Street ramp will be closed
A truck detour is available: Linden Boulevard Detour- Gowanus Expressway to Prospect Expressway/McDonald Avenue to Caton Avenue to Linden Boulevard.
