It appears that per the below advisory, issued by RIOC, the bride will be opening and closing late tonight. I wonder how many openings and closings they have run due to the United Nations at this point. And as a result do we have a full time ambulance sitting on the island side of the bridge in case of an emergency?
"Roosevelt Island Bridge Advisory
For tonight only Tuesday 9/25/07 the hours of operation for the Roosevelt Island Bridge will be extended until 11:00 PM due to US Coast Guard UN Security Zone East River Closures.
For Wednesday 9/26/07 until Friday 10/05/07, hours of operations for the Roosevelt Island Bridge will remain unchanged, from 7:00 AM until 7:00 PM.
The bridge will be subject to openings throughout these time periods."
