Weekend construction projects are resuming for the first time since Sandy struck.



The Brooklyn Bridge will be subject to a full closure going into Manhattan during the overnight hours.



The Manhattan Bridge will have lanes closed during the overnight hours, as well as maintenance going inbound.



The Battery Tunnel will still have restrictions.



In an effort to finish repairs from Sandy, there may also be construction on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.



Construction will also appear sporadically on Flatbush Avenue, from Avenue U to the Marine Parkway Bridge, and all areas west of Flatbush Avenue from Atlantic Avenue to the Manhattan Bridge.



There will also be a closure on Emerson Place between Myrtle and Park avenues from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the weekend.



Alternate side of the street parking rules will be in effect this weekend, except for parts of Brooklyn that have storm damage.
