Holiday Weekend Roadwork Suspended
To accommodate travelers during the busy Memorial Day weekend, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently announced that road and bridge construction projects on New York State highways will be suspended from 6 a.m. on Friday, May 27, to 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31.
There will be slight variations for certain Thruway projects based on previous traffic volume. A detailed schedule of Thruway lane closures throughout the holiday weekend is available here.
Mobile users can also download the updated, 511NY mobile app from the iTunes or Google Play stores. The app now features Drive mode, which provides audible alerts along a chosen route while a user is driving, warning them about incidents and construction. The app allows users to set a destination prior to departing and receive information on up to three routes.
Beginning January 27th, Goethals Bridge motorists should expect early morning 30 min traffic holds in both directions, multiple times a week, Monday – Friday. Holds will occur at 4:30 AM until 5AM. The Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing will be open and are alternate routes. This construction activity will continue weekly for the rest of 2016.
