BQE to Close for Three Weekends in 2023

NYC DOT announced that sections of the BQE’s triple cantilever will be closed for three weekends between March and October next year while “emergency repairs” are made to areas around Clark Street, Grace Court, and the Joralemon Street garage.

Queens-bound lanes will be closed for all three weekends, while Staten Island-bound traffic will be less affected with just one lane closed on the first weekend, DOT Executive Director, BQE, Design Build and Emergency Contracts.

The dates for the weekend closures aren’t known yet, but they won’t be back to back, Pandya said. The time of the closures will be from Saturday 2 a.m. to Monday 4 a.m. In preparation for the work, each weekend closure will be preceded by several night closures to get rid of the old concrete and rebar that needs to be replaced. Those shutdowns will run from 1 a.m. until 5 a.m.
