The lane closures on Monday through Friday nights are required in order for the contractor to continue with the replacement of the deck in the middle three lanes on the Tappan Zee Bridge.  

During the nighttime operations, 20-minute traffic stoppages will take place in both the northbound and southbound directions.

For the safety of the public and construction workers, motorists are urged to proceed with caution and obey posted work-zone speed limits.

The second phase of the deck replacement project is slated for completion in the Winter of 2012.

The work is weather-dependent, and is subject to change. Updates will be issued to announce any change in schedule.

Traffic updates will be broadcast to motorists via Variable Message Signs along the highway and by Highway Advisory Radio 530 AM in the Tappan Zee Bridge corridor. To see real-time webcam views of the bridge and approaches,  click here.
