The Hub NY: Columbus Day Commute

Going into NYC for work or fun?

The Hub NY: Columbus Day Commute

Metro North is running a regular, weekday schedule for those who must work.

For the fortunate ones who can go into the city for pleasure here's a list of subway stops that will get you to the Columbus Day Parade.

Today, try the MTA's  webpage "The Weekender" which you can find starting Friday afternoons. It has details of weekend maintenance & construction work on the subways—on a handy interactive map.

In local construction, the big action is in Putnam County on I-84.

Starting Monday, it's down to one lane in both directions between I-684 and Route 121 in Southeast. Bridge repairs will go through Thursday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Then there's ramp work at Exit 20 Monday-Friday in Southeast that will include closures, mostly at night (weather permitting).

In Brewster on Monday, Route 22 will be down to one lane of alternating traffic due to crack sealing.

Also in Southeast, there will be east- and westbound lane closures on Route 6 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

In Rockland County , the huge Route 59 project in Clarkstown continues.

Westchester County has a few things going on everywhere.

Assume work somewhere on every parkway and interstate. In addition:

The northbound right lane on Route 9 in Peekskill will be closed 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Oct. 14.

Route 9 at the junction of 9A on the Ossining-Croton border will have one lane blocked Oct. 11.

Road work and lane closures continue on Route 9A in Cortlandt between Crugers Station Road and Trinity Avenue.

On Tuesday, expect lane closures on Route 9 in Dobbs Ferry between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
