The New York State Thruway Authority confirmed that the Tappan Zee Bridge deck replacement project will continue Jan. 14 through 18. While the deck plates have been replaced, additional work is necessary in the upcoming months.
The work will take place during the day and cause lane closures. All lanes will be open during the night as no work is scheduled.
Weather-related postponements are possible and will be announced. Variable Message Signs on the highway will alert travelers to traffic conditions. Motorists can also check Highway Advisory Radio 530 AM in the Tappan Zee Bridge corridor and 1610 AM in the Newburgh area.
A real-time webcam of the bridge and its approaches is available here: http://www.thruway.ny.gov/travelers/map/index.html?layer=cameras.
