    The bike and pedestrian lanes on the Queensboro Bridge will close at night for several months as Con Edison performs electrical work, the utilities company said.

    Starting Monday, the lanes will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Friday, until at least June.

    The closure is due to a power cable-related project that Con Edison is working on across the span of the bridge.

    Free shuttle buses and vehicles equipped to carry bicycles operate from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. over the next few months as the project continues. The shuttles run in 15-minute intervals.

    The Manhattan shuttle stop (left) and Queens shuttle stop (right).

    On the Queens side, the shuttles stop at the corner of Queens Plaza North and Crescent Street.

    On the Manhattan side, the shuttles stop at the corner of East 59th Street and First Avenue.

    Pedestrian and bicyclists can also take MTA buses and subways across the bridge.
