Starting today and lasting for four weeks, the city’s Department of Transportation will be closing one to two lanes on the eastbound and westbound sides of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in the early morning every day.

The Division of Bridges announced Tuesday that it would be performing “design-related field activities” on the Kane Street Bridge above the roadway .

The lane closures, near the Cobble Hill portion of the highway, will all take place in the early morning hours and will not affect rush hour commutes.
