Tappan Zee Bridge Repairs To Continue
Off-Peak Bridge Repairs, Maintenance Scheduled Tuesday - Friday

Routine repairs on the Tappan Zee Bridge will continue on Tuesday, January 17, through Friday, January 20, during off-peak travel times, weather permitting, the New York State Thruway Authority announced.

In an effort to provide the best possible customer service to New York’s travelers and commuters, the Thruway Authority will continue to schedule repairs during off-peak travel times, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and overnight when possible.

The length of each closure varies throughout the day, but rarely extends more than one-tenth of a mile past the end of the bridge.

  • Monday, January 16: Holiday; no lane closures.
  • Tuesday, January 17: One right lane northbound closed for bridge maintenance beginning at milepost 13.1 to 16.2, between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
