Evening drivers and commuters: get ready for three-lane closures this week and more per the May 1 press release.

They’re on southbound I-87/I-287 from near Exit 11 to the bridge starting Monday (tomorrow) to Friday; roads will be clear during weekends.

The first lane will close at 7 p.m., second lane will close at 9 p.m., and the third lane at 10:30 p.m.; all will reopen the following day at 6 a.m.; Saturday at 8 a.m. One lane will be open at all times.

All four lanes southbound lanes will be closed periodically near Exit 11 Wednesday and Thursday between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. State police will be stopping and holding traffic before the lanes are closed so construction crews can move equipment from the right shoulder to the left.

Note that access to the Thruway southbound will be via Route 59 in Nyack from Tuesday, May 5, at 10 p.m., to Wednesday, May 6, at 5 a.m. while the Exit 10 on-ramp is temporarily closed.

The bridge builder is modifying the Thruway for the temporary toll gantry until a new toll plaza is built in Tarrytown. Three weeks ago part of the former police barracks was demolished to make way for a staging area.

I’d like to know what you think.
