9th Street Bridge Closed Thursday and Friday!

The New York City Department of Transportation Division of Bridges will fully close the Ninth Street Bridge over the Gowanus Canal on Thursday, July 15, 2010, from 10 p.m., until Friday, July 16, 2010, at 4:00 a.m.

This closure is necessary to repair the span lock socket. Due to the full bridge closure traffic will be detoured to the Hamilton Avenue Bridge and Third Street Bridges.

Variable Message Sign Boards will be placed on each side of the bridge at least seven days in advance of the work in order to notify the public. Future updates will be provided as needed.
