As work continues on dismantling the old Tappan Zee Bridge, with a large section of steel above the Metro-North Hudson Line removed earlier this month, commuters can expect additional lane closures
The closures will take place on the New York State Thruway (I-87/I-287) northbound/westbound traffic lanes from exit 9 (Tarrytown – Sleepy Hollow – US Route 9) to exit 10 (Nyack – South Nyack – US Route 9W) on Monday, Nov. 20.
Closure details include:
- 2 a.m. – Two right lanes closed
- 6 a.m. – Three right lanes open
- 3 p.m. – All lanes open
In addition, Tappan Zee Constructors (TZC) will continue dismantling the old Tappan Zee Bridge operations above the Hudson River including cutting and dividing sections of steel and concrete into manageable sections. Floating cranes will raise the sections and place them on barges, to be transported offsite.
Construction on the second span also continues with workers installing rebar and pouring concrete to create the piers as dismantling efforts move further away from the shorelines.
All lane closures are subject to change due to traffic, weather or emergency situations. Please visit http://www.thruway.ny.gov/travelers/map/ for real-time information regarding traffic conditions.
