Expect Closures On New York State Thruway

If you are travelling southbound on the New York State Thruway anytime after 8pm this week, you should leave early and expect lane closures and traffic backups. The lane closures will take place at Exit 11 down to the Tappan Zee Bridge. According to officials, one lane will close at 8pm, followed by a second lane at 9pm and then the third lane at 10:30 pm. All lanes are expected to reopen by 6am the next morning. It is also important to note that there will be periodic traffic stops, lasting up to 10minutes at a time. These traffic stops will occur anytime between 8pm and 4am. Also note that the southbound on-ramp from Exit 10 in Nyack will be closed from 9pm Wednesday until 5am Thursday. Commuters will be directed to the Route 59 on-ramp in Nyack. This is all an effort to continue work on the new Tappan Zee Bridge, move the heavy equipment and to continue work on the temporary electronic toll system for the bridge. The work and closures will take place weather permitting and may be re-scheduled if necessary.
