The move came as rain — including locally heavy downpours — and gusting winds were forecast to hit the region. Rain is expected to peak in the afternoon, while strong winds could be a factor into the night. A wind advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. through 9 p.m. for portions of the tri-state area.

Pedestrian walkways at the Cross Bay Bridge and Marine Parkway Bridge will also be closed, the MTA said in the same news release. Pedestrian access at the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge and Henry Hudson Bridge will stay open as conditions allow, the agency added.
