Overnight Thruway Lane Closings, Traffic Stops
Three-lane closures on southbound I-87/I-287 from near Exit 11 to the bridge begin Monday (tomorrow) to Friday; roads will be clear for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
Details about this week’s construction are in the May 15 press release.
The first lane will close at 8 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 Monday to Friday between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Ramps will remain open during this time. 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 Wednesday at 9 p.m. until Thursday 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. Five 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.
