Lane Closures, Sheet Piles and Warm Weather

Tomorrow evening . . .

. . . two southbound lanes on I-87/I-287 will close for one mile — from the toll plaza to just north of Exit 8A — from 7 p.m. through March 14 at 6 a.m. You’ll have two lanes open while work is done on a highway sign structure.

Additionally, the Exit 10 ramp in South Nyack closes overnight March 10 from 9 p.m. to the next morning at 5 a.m. Use Exit 11, then follow signs to Routes 9W and 59 while Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) retripes the road and moves temporary barriers.


Inclement weather might change plans. Visit Traveler Map — New York State Thruway for real-time information regarding traffic conditions.

Also starting tomorrow and through the next two weeks, TZC will be installing sheet piles for the South Nyack abutment foundations with minimal noise impacts. Work continues on the Westchester and Rockland landing abutments.

It’s nearly three months since the mid-December accident involving one floating concrete batch plant, and no new updates. Limited concrete placement continues since TZC shut down both batch plants. Concrete for foundations near Rockland’s South Nyack shorelines is from local concrete suppliers.

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 about ongoing work are here.

Last but not least . . .

We moved the clocks so bring on spring! 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.
