Getting to and from Niagara Falls via Grand Island will likely take some extra time this weekend.

The New York State Thruway Authority is closing the northbound North Grand Island Bridge Friday night through Monday morning as part of a $8.4 million deck improvement project.

The northbound bridge will be closed from Friday at 8:30 p.m. and will reopen Monday at 6 a.m.

All northbound traffic will be shifted into a single lane on the southbound bridge.
