Alert “06880” reader Jo Shields noticed something new yesterday on the Merritt Parkway North Avenue bridge:
With the appearance of black plastic-wrapped traffic lights strung at both ends of the North Avenue bridge, it looks as if we are into this construction business for the long haul.
The bridge has been open to 1-lane traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with construction crews directing traffic. I wonder if the light will allow the bridge to be open longer to local traffic, or just free up the extra crew.
However, I haven’t seen any construction work going on. Optimistically thinking, perhaps that’s taking place from 6:01 p.m. to 5:59 a.m. ?
