Lane Closures, Gantry Removal, Detours & More

If you missed seeing parts of the bridge on the northern side of the Thruway a few weeks ago, here’s what you (and I) missed.

Remember the lane shifts that started in September so crews could begin demolishing part of the Westchester landing? Two right northbound traffic lanes will be closed at varying times, per the November 7 press release, to build the abutment and first foundation pier for the northern span.

Prepare to stop if you’re heading north on the Thruway near Exit 9 this coming Friday (Nov. 14) night/Saturday (Nov. 15) early morning: all northbound lanes will close for three times for 20 minutes each between 11:59 p.m. and 4 a.m., when an overhead sign gantry is removed.

Only one lane will be open until Saturday at 6 a.m. — and it, too, might be closed.

The Exit 9 on-ramp from Route 119 in Tarrytown will close from Friday, Nov. 14, at 9 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 15, at 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. 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).

I’d like to know what you think.
