Up to two Bronx-bound lanes will be closed this weekend at the Throgs Neck Bridge starting Friday night, July 12 through Monday morning, July 15, 2019. 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 05:00 a.m. Monday.
  • A second Bronx-bound lane will be closed on Friday and Saturday nights, from 10:00 p.m. to 07:00 a.m. and on Sunday into Monday from 10:00 p.m. to 05:00 a.m.

The paving work entails replacing a total of 75,000-square-feet of binder and asphalt overlay over a series of weekends throughout the summer and fall.

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. Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at www.mymtaalerts.com and check the Bridges and Tunnels homepage or Facebook page for the latest information on this planned work.
