Deck work on Hanover Street's Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge south of Federal Hill will close the span in stages beginning Tuesday, according to the Baltimore Department of Transportation.

Southbound lanes of Hanover Street between East McComas Street in Riverside north of the bridge, and Waterview Avenue in Cherry Hill south of the bridge, will close around 10 a.m. Tuesday, and will remain closed through 5 a.m. Monday morning, the department said.

Northbound lanes in the same stretch will close Friday night, at midnight, and also remain closed until 5 a.m. Monday, the department said.

The bridge is a major conveyor of traffic into the city from the south. It has also attracted the ire of local residents and commuters since last winter for being in poor shape, riddled with potholes.

Motorists should use Route 295 as an alternate route, the department said.
