Around 5:30 a.m., a fire broke out on a construction platform under the Throgs Neck Bridge. According to WABC 7, "The fire spread under the bridge, from the Bronx-bound to Queens-bound lanes. FDNY marine boats were responding to put out the flames." And the MTA just sent this statement: "The Throgs Neck Bridge continues to be closed in both directions due to a fire on scaffolding under the bridge where contractors were working this morning. No reports of injuries. The Fire Department is on the scene along with engineers. There is currently no estimate of when the bridge might reopen. That will be a decision made by the Fire Department and engineers on the scene. Traffic is being diverted to the Bronx Whitestone and RFK Bridges."
