ALTERNATE SIDE PARKING RULES REMAIN IN EFFECT ALL WEEK
Construction will affect both Hudson River tunnels this coming week causing late-night gridlock in the vicinity of the Holland Tunnel. At the approach to the Lincoln Tunnel, all Manhattan-bound lanes of the “helix” road will be closed overnight 10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. both Wednesday and Thursday. All New Jersey-bound lanes of the helix will be closed overnight 10:30 p.m. Wednesday to 4:30 a.m. Thursday. One Manhattan-bound lane will be closed overnight 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday. This will send drivers south to the Holland. But, drivers who take the Holland Tunnel will face delays as one lane in each direction will close overnight 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. both Wednesday and Thursday.
In Brooklyn Bridge news, all Manhattan-bound lanes will be closed overnight 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. both Wednesday and Thursday. Take the Manhattan or Williamsburg bridges instead.
