Lane Closures, Overnight Detour Next Week

A friend told me about northbound traffic yesterday just past Exit 9. Said it reminded her of her commuting days, when the train pulled away from its Grand Central Station platform only to stall just beyond it.

Telltale orange cones. One less lane. I’ve seen drivers pull into an on-ramp (that eventually ends) to “get ahead” of the other cars. The sense?

That said, the Exit 9 on-ramp from Route 119 in Tarrytown will close from Tuesday, September 30, at 8 p.m., to Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 4:30 a.m.

One detour is approximately 1.5 miles east on Route 119/White Plains Road to Exit 8A in Elmsford per map below. OK if you’re in that area.

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).

Yom Kippur begins Friday evening and ends Saturday evening.

Some southbound lanes from the Nyack approach to the Tarrytown toll plaza — including both 35-mph E-ZPass® lanes — will be closed on Friday, Oct. 3, from 10 p.m. to Saturday, Oct. 4, at 6 a.m. Check here for details about lane shifts and closures.

I’d like to know what you think.
