Trio of Traffic Events Starting Tonight at 9 p.m.
Today’s the last day for using E-ZPass® and cash lanes at the Tarrytown toll plaza. Photos courtesy of New York State Thruway Authority.
Before that happens three southbound lanes between Exits 10 and 9 will close — two at 9 p.m., one at midnight — and will reopen tomorrow at 8 a.m.
Three toll plaza lanes will be open from 11 p.m. to midnight; speed is limited to 20 miles per hour. After midnight — and when the last fare has been paid in Tarrytown — the electronic gantry will be activated.
So . . . if you’re driving to Westchester and clear the gantry seconds before midnight, then yours may be one of the last vehicles to drive through the toll plaza. Speed remains 20 mph.
Drivers will have five more lanes to use after 6 a.m. at the same speed. It’s 35 mph for the two left lanes until May, when the next construction phase begins.
The Exit 10 on-ramp in South Nyack will close at 10 p.m. and will reopen tomorrow at 5 a.m. Additionally, traffic between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Exit 11 to the bridge will be stopped from time to time.
I’d like to know what you think.
