ORANGETOWN, N.Y. – Work on an all-electronic toll-collection system at the Tappan Zee Bridge will force overnight closures of lanes and ramps on the southbound state New York State Thruway in Rockland County.

Field testing of the system will begin Friday near the Exit 10 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W) and Exit 11 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W) on-ramps to the southbound Thruway (I-87/I-287).

The testing will necessitate closing the on-ramps during the overnights of Friday, Jan. 29, and Wednesday, Feb. 3, through Sunday, Feb. 7.

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 detour routes.

The work will also require the overnight closures of up to three lanes of the southbound Thruway throughout the remainder of the week and during the coming week.

Construction of noise barriers along the Thruway in South Nyack is also continuing.
