Now that the westbound span towers of the new Tappan Zee Bridge have reached their maximum height, commuters can expect lane shifts as Tappan Zee Constructors LLC (TZC) begin work to prepare the site for the future New York State Police Troop T barracks.

The shift will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, in the area of the former Tarrytown toll plaza. The lanes will be shifted approximately 20 feet to the north, officials said. All lanes will reopen by 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.

The lane closures will include up to three southbound/eastbound lanes across the Tappan Zee Bridge from exit 10 (Nyack - South Nyack - US Route 9W) to exit 9 (Tarrytown - Sleepy Hollow - US Route 9).

At least one lane will remain open at all times, except during periodic traffic stops lasting up to 10 minutes of all four lanes of the southbound/eastbound Thruway from exit 10 to exit 9.

To ensure the public’s safety, the New York State Police will stop and hold all traffic approaching the area immediately before the traffic stops go into effect.

TZC is scheduled to realign northbound/westbound lanes in the area in November.
