Lane Closures Tonight thru Tomorrow A.M. Only
“Walk between the raindrops,” mom would say. And still does. If you’re driving in them today, you’ll want to watch out: three northbound lanes on I-87/I-287 will be closed to apply lane markers and shift lanes:
• From Monday (tonight) at 11 p.m. to (Tuesday) tomorrow at 4:30 am. — from Exit 9 to and including Exit 10 (closed at 10 p.m.). Only one lane will be open. Use Exit 11, then follow signs to Routes 9W and 59.
Rain or snow means all bets are off, and plans move to Tuesday night.
Thanksgiving Day this week means no lane closures from Wednesday to next week, thanks to Governor Cuomo’s Drivers First Initiative. There’s more:
• From tonight at 8 p.m. to tomorrow at 4:30 a.m., and again from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. — to remove part of the Westchester landing and make room for construction.
And pile driving for the new foundations is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays; occasionally, from 12 noon to 7 p.m. on Saturdays.
Details, including pile driving and boater safety, are in the November 21 press release. Check out the Coast Guard’s weekly Local Notice to Mariners, excerpted and in its entirety, listed under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website. A LNM primer is here.
I’d like to know what you think.
