NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The second span of the new Kosciuszko Bridge is set to open to drivers early Thursday morning.

Before it opens to traffic, the bridge will first be open to bicyclists and pedestrians on Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The bridge will carry five lanes of traffic on the Queens-bound side.

The Brooklyn-bound span will carry four lanes of traffic along with a 20-foot-wide bikeway and walkway.
