The NYC Department of Transportation Division of Bridges will conduct routine monthly testing of the Roosevelt Island Bridge. As a result, intermittent 15-minute closures will take place on Tuesday, November 19 and Tuesday, November 26 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM each day. A second test may occur only after the first full test is concluded and any queued traffic has dissipated.
Testing requires a complete closure of the bridge to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic during lifts. We thank you for your patience during these tests.
