Brooklyn Bridge Construction Question

Jump to last reply

One of the things we're going to do this weekend is walk across the Brooklyn Bridge (Brooklyn to Manhattan). I understand the bridge is under construction but I've looked up the promenade info and here's what the website says:

"The promenade will remain open throughout all phases of construction. However, in order to fully enclose railings and other components, the paint removal containment units will reduce the width of the path by 1.5 feet on each side. The narrowed area will be from 600 to 1000 feet long. For the safety of all bridge users, cyclists must yield to pedestrians in this restricted work zone. Cyclists may also use the nearby Manhattan Bridge bike path, which is separated from the pedestrian path and often less congested. As work progresses the units will move across the bridge until the project is complete."

Here's what I want to know. How high are the railings and will 'fully enclosed' railings impede the view? I've been wanting to do this walk for years and every time I plan it, something gets in the way!
Thanks
