TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Construction on the all-electronic toll system of the new New York Bridge project will force overnight closures of the Exit 10 on-ramp to Interstate-87/Interstate-287 in South Nyack on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, according to the New York State Thruway Authority.
The cashless toll system is expected to be completed at some point this spring.
The overnight closures will last from 9 p.m. – 5 a.m. the following morning.
On Friday, the on-ramp closure will extend beyond 5 a.m. as demolition of the former maintenance facility for Tappan Zee Constructors and excavation of the New York State Thruway Authority’s former Tarrytown offices continues, according to a statement from the organization.
Additional work at the bridge, which is expected to last for months, includes construction noise barrier walls, the main span tower, supports for river-based work from the Rockland trestle, Rockland landing retaining walls, survey inspections on the exist bridge, Westchester landings utility work and several other projects related to the new bridge.
