The Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge will intermittently close early tomorrow morning, and pre-dawn drivers leaving Queens may want to find another way back to Brooklyn, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced.

Workers will close the bridge for 20-minute spans from 12:01 am to 5 am on March 9 to test lifting mechanisms, officials said.

The bridge’s Queens-bound roadway is closed from 7 am Monday to 1 pm Friday until mid-May, according to an authority service advisory.
