Two lanes will be closed tonight, the first at 7 p.m. (in half an hour) and the second at 11 p.m.; both will reopen tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.

TZC is modifying the highway for a temporary all-electronic toll collection system. Three lanes will be closed next week from Monday, June 1, through Friday, June 5, on southbound I-87/I-287 from near Exit 11 to the bridge.

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 weekday 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 Thursday and Friday between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., and Friday and Saturday between 8 p.m. and 8 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.

A new toll plaza will be built in Tarrytown. In early April, part of the former police barracks was demolished to make way for a staging area.

I’d like to know what you think.
