This Week: Lane Closings, Shifts and Detours
Saturday brought rain — as kids, we’d splash in puddles to see how far the water would fly — and this week brings traffic alerts, detailed in the December 5 press release.
Tomorrow, December 9, two northbound lanes on I-87/I-287 will close at 8 p.m., a third will close at 10:30 p.m., and all will reopen on Wednesday (December 10) at 4:30 a.m.
Note: The Exit 9 on-ramp from Route 119 in Tarrytown will also close during this time. 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).
Since August, six lighted channel markers have guided them to and from the Piermont shore. Off-limits is the U.S. Coast Guard’s Safety Zone; know the expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA).
I’d like to know what you think.
