FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Commuters crossing into New York using the George Washington Bridge won’t be able to use the lower level eastbound lanes overnight beginning Monday.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Friday the lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the week and from 11 p.m. until 8 a.m. on Saturday.

The agency says the closures will allow workers to remove temporary construction platforms used during installation of the deck on the upper level.

Similar closures are expected to continue through mid-October.

The Port Authority says it will give notice about additional lane closings.
