Throgs Neck Bridge Weekend Work Lane Closures

Up to two Bronx-bound lanes at the Throgs Neck Bridge will be closed this weekend, Aug. 14-17 for asphalt and binder work on the bridge.

One Bronx-bound lane will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.  
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, a second lane will be closed as follows:

 10 p.m. Friday until 7 a.m. Saturday

 10 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday  

 10 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday   

The roadway binder and asphalt work has been done each summer since 2012 with minimal impact to traffic. Motorists may use the Bronx-Whitestone or the Robert F. Kennedy bridges as an alternate route.  
This work is heavily dependent on good weather. The contractor cannot apply new binder and asphalt in rainy weather or in extreme humidity.  
Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at www.mta.info and check the Bridges and Tunnels homepage or Facebook page for the latest information on this planned work.
