Thruway, TZB Overnight Delays Friday, Saturday

road closed at bridge

Three northbound lanes will close tonight at 9 p.m. until tomorrow (Saturday) at 2 p.m. and will close again from 9 p.m. until Sunday at 2 p.m. No closures for southbound traffic.

Get ready for delays due to pier foundation work near the Rockland and periodic pile driving. This also means noise; however, construction crews will use vibratory hammers and noise-reducing shrouds to lessen the impacts.

You can drive northbound on the far left open lane; however, advice is to avoid the area or use the George Washington Bridge or the Bear Mountain Bridge. Factor in periodic 10-minute traffic stops on all four northbound lanes from Exit 9 in Tarrytown to the bridge.

I’d postpone plans until the lanes reopen.

Listen for updates about closures and delays at Variable Message Signs (VMS) across the region and Highway Advisory Radio 530 AM.

Bad weather means all bets are off, and the work is moved to next Friday from 9 p.m. to Saturday at 2 p.m., completed then. Sunday is Mother’s Day.

I’d like to know what you think.

    It’s would be nice if there was a Twitter account for updates on bridge construction and lane closures.
