Two Bronx-bound lanes at the Throgs Neck Bridge will be closed throughout this weekend starting Friday night, June 17th through Monday morning, June 20th, 2016. At least one lane will remain open to Bronx-bound traffic; Queens-bound lanes are unaffected.
Weekend work requires the following lane closures:
One Bronx-bound lane will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.
A second Bronx-bound lane will be closed on Friday and Saturday nights, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. and on Sunday into Monday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
The paving work entails a total of at least six weekends throughout the summer in order to replace a total of 75,000-square-feet of binder and asphalt overlay.
“Doing this work on weekends and overnight when traffic volume is lower causes the least impact to customers,” said Throgs Neck Facility Engineer Edmond Knightly. Once completed motorists will have a smoother, more-even riding surface.
Motorists should expect delays and plan accordingly; they can also use the Bronx-Whitestone or the Robert F. Kennedy bridges as an alternate route.
This work is heavily dependent on good weather. The contractor cannot apply new asphalt in rainy weather or in extreme humidity.
