BROOKLYN - Elected officials and residents are asking the Department of Transportation for a nighttime noise reduction on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Councilman Stephen Levin joined community leaders today at Cadman Plaza to address what they say is extreme noise caused by overnight construction. Levin says the racket is keeping people living near the bridge from falling asleep and has been disruptive for two years now.

DOT officials say they have already done everything they can to decrease the noise and are actively looking for new ways to decrease it further.

According to the DOT's website, the construction is supposed to be completed next year.
