FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Workers have finished replacing the steel deck panels on the George Washington Bridge’s upper level.

The work, which began in 2012, required the overnight closings of three of the four eastbound or westbound lanes.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Wednesday said the $82 million project involved replacing 362 panels and support structure that will extend the bridge’s deck life by 15 to 20 years.

The westbound upper-level roadway was also resurfaced.

Approximately 300,000 vehicles use the George Washington Bridge every day.
