Officials prepare for NJ-NYC bridge work

FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) — One of the most heavily-traveled bridges in the country is getting a face-lift, which might leave motorists traveling between New Jersey and New York City little to smile about.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is preparing for roadwork, scheduled to begin soon on the George Washington Bridge.

The Port Authority says more than 49 million vehicles crossed the span last year from New Jersey into New York City.

The bridge’s upper-deck dates back to 1931. The lower deck was opened in 1962.
