A section of the Bruckner Expressway in the Bronx remains closed for emergency repairs.

Crews are fixing giant holes that opened up on the road Thursday in Hunts Point.

Two eastbound lanes approaching Bronx River Avenue will be closed until 3 p.m. Saturday.

The eastbound entrance ramp from Bruckner Boulevard to the Bruckner Expressway at Bronx River Avenue will also be closed during this time.

Workers will perform full-depth concrete deck repairs on deck damage that appeared during rush hour.

These permanent repairs will replace a temporary steel plate that has been in place since shortly after the deck damage appeared.

Travelers can expect delays and should consider alternate routes.
