NYACK, N.Y. -- Tappan Zee Constructors will begin the first phase of constructing a noise barrier along the northbound New York State Thruway in South Nyack the week of Jan. 11, according to a press release from the Thruway Authority.
The operation will include demolishing an existing retaining wall between the Thruway and the parking lot of the Eagle Rock apartments on Piermont Avenue. A temporary noise-reducing fence and concrete barrier will be installed as the demolition occurs.
The second phase of work, which includes the construction of new retaining walls and foundations, will follow once demolition is complete.
Construction of foundations for noise barriers along the southbound Thruway will also continue next week between the South Broadway bridge and River Road. This work involves drilling holes into the soil to install foundations. After the foundations are installed, concrete panels that form the noise barriers will be installed. The barriers will be treated with sound-absorbing material to further reduce traffic noise to the nearby community.
All-Electronic Toll Collection Gantry Work Construction of the project’s temporary all-electronic toll collection (AETC) system in Rockland will continue near the exit 10 (Nyack - South Nyack - US Route 9W) on-ramp to the southbound Thruway. The work will necessitate closing the on-ramp during the overnights from Wednesday, Jan. 13 through Friday, Jan. 15. Drivers will be directed to use the on-ramp from Route 59 in Nyack.
In addition, the work will require overnight closures of two lanes of the southbound Thruway during the coming week. Click here to see a complete schedule of closures.
