BROOKLYN - The Department of Transportation is shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge?s Manhattan-bound lanes for the next four years on weekends and some nights.

The $500 million restoration project means that all traffic will be diverted to the Manhattan Bridge during weeknights from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. On Saturdays, the lanes will be closed from midnight to 7 a.m. and on Sundays from midnight to 9 a.m.

All six lanes will be open for rush hour during the weekdays.
