Access Denied: Avoid 9th Street Lift Bridge over Gowanus due to truck slamming into scaffolding

All I ask of my Saturday commute is to walk the streets safely and not have a truck slam into the scaffolding, crushing me with debris. Fortunately, this did not happen to me or anyone else for that matter. If you’re heading from Carroll Gardens to Gowanus tonight, or vice verse, on foot, or by bike, or by car, don’t bother. The lift bridge is shut down completely.

Truck drivers of America, please: When you see a sign that says “Maximum Clearance”, pay attention! I need crush-proof access to my apartment, thank you kindly.
