ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- Tappan Zee Constructors will continue the final phases of demolition of the New York State Thruway Authority’s former maintenance offices in Tarrytown next week.
Crews will remove the roof and walls of the facility before excavating the building’s foundations and garage facilities. Bridge maintenance teams currently operate from a temporary facility near Exit 12 in West Nyack. The demolition will make way for a new maintenance facility building, which will begin construction this spring.
Field testing of the project’s temporary all-electronic toll collection, or AETC, system in Rockland will continue throughout the coming week near on-ramps to the southbound New York State Thruway (I-87/I-287) at Exit 10 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W) and Exit 11 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W).
The testing will necessitate closing the on-ramps during the overnights Monday to Friday next week. Drivers will be directed to use the Exit 12 (West Nyack-N.Y. Route 303-Palisades Center Drive) on-ramp from Route 303 in West Nyack.
Signs will be posted to advise motorists of the detour route. In addition, the work will require the overnight closure of up to three lanes of the southbound Thruway during the coming week. The AETC system is expected to be activated this spring.
