Motorists could run into traffic tie-ups on the Walt Whitman Bridge after 8 p.m. Wednesday when workers close one of the span’s seven lanes to begin a $139 million redecking project. The closure is earlier than originally announced.

The righthand eastbound lane will be shut down for about the next five months, and successive lanes will be closed, one at a time, for five months each while they are being rebuilt.

The construction project is expected to to be finished by the spring of 2014.
