Verrazano-Narrows getting $236 million makeover

December 3, 2012 5:15:43 AM PST
The MTA plans to spend nearly $236 million to rip apart and replace the upper roadway of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

The plan is to create the authority's first reversible HOV lane.

The new lane will connect with HOV lanes that lead up to both ends of the bridge.

Construction will begin next year, and it's expected to be completed in four years.

The upper level of the bridge will remain open while the new roadway is installed.
