A warning for drivers who use the Brooklyn Bridge: the iconic span will once again be closed to overnight Manhattan-bound traffic.

Transportation officials say the overnight closures are long term and necessary to rehabilitate and repaint the Brooklyn Bridge.

The closures began Monday, April 4 and last from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weekdays.

On weekends the closures will begin at midnight and last until 7 a.m. on Saturdays and 9 a.m. on Sundays.
