Periodic closures of all four lanes of the southbound Thruway in the vicinity of exit 11 (Nyack – South Nyack – US Route 9W) will occur tonight between 8 p.m., Friday, May 8 and 8 a.m., Saturday, May 9. To ensure the public’s safety, the New York State Police will stop and hold all traffic approaching the area immediately before the closures go into effect. Motorists will be permitted to enter the Thruway from all ramps during the closures.
The exit 10 (Nyack – South Nyack – US Route 9W) on-ramps to the southbound Thruway will be closed from 10 p.m., Monday, May 11 to 5 a.m., Tuesday, May 12. Drivers will be directed to use the on-ramp from Route 59 in Nyack.
River Road utility work will continue the week of May 11. The work may require reducing River Road to one lane at times. TZC will also continue concrete placement for foundations near the South Nyack shoreline.
Construction of Pier 1 located near River Road in S. Nyack will continue with the installation of sheet piles. The sheet piles support the surrounding soil while the foundation for the new bridge pier is constructed. TZC is implementing additional noise reducing measures, including sound-absorptive temporary noise barriers to protect nearby residents. The Environmental compliance team will be on site to monitor the noise levels during this operation.
I hope everyone has a very Happy Mother’s Day.
