This is the New York State Thruway Regional Advisory message for the New York area. OK, it's traffic time Currently, there are no traffic reports With the ongoing construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge, motorists are advised to keep their eyes on the roadway, avoid distractions, and tailgating other vehicles. Views of the new bridge construction can be seen on the New New York Bridge project website and viewing platform in Tarrytown. A long term closure of the I-95 Exit 16 (New Rochelle/North Avenue/Cedar Street) southbound on-ramp will begin Tuesday, December 15, at 10AM, and continue for the duration of the winter season.
Ongoing bridge, and pavement repairs in the vicinity of the Exit 16 southbound on-ramp will force the closure of the ramp, due to the lack of an acceleration lane for entering traffic. All traffic seeking to enter I-95 southbound, will be detoured via Memorial Highway to the Memorial Highway southbound entrance ramp.
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
