Per the July 25 press release from project officials:

“Nighttime electrical work on the Tarrytown approach to the Tappan Zee Bridge will continue the week of July 28. The Thruway will remain open to traffic as the nighttime operations continue, however traffic entering the northbound/westbound Thruway at Exit 9 will be impacted during some of the work. Traffic exiting the Thruway at Exit 9 will not be affected.”

There will be no access to I-87/I-287 north/west today and tomorrow from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. One detour is approximately 1.5 miles east on Route 119/White Plains Road to Exit 8A in Elmsford per map below.

My suggestion if you’re already in Tarrytown or Sleepy Hollow:

Take Benedict Avenue at South Broadway through to Route 119/White Plains Road in Greenburgh. Turn left at the light, and continue to I-87/I-287 north/west (sign is on the left).
