Throgs Neck Bridge Bronx-Bound Weekend Lane Closures For Milling and Paving Work

Published on : Saturday, August 27, 2016

MTA-RailUp to two Bronx-bound lanes will be closed this weekend at the Throgs Neck Bridge starting Friday night, August 26th through Monday morning, August 29th, 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 around-the clock, 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. The Bronx-Whitestone and the Robert F. Kennedy bridges can be used as alternate routes.
This work is heavily dependent on suitable weather. The contractor cannot perform the work in rainy weather or in extreme humidity.
