Press Release

One Lane Closed Queens-bound Throgs Neck Bridge Through Wed., Oct. 9

One Queens-bound lane at the Throgs Neck Bridge will remain closed around-the-clock at least through Wed., Oct. 9 for binder and asphalt replacement work that could not be completed over the weekend due to inclement weather.

Motorists may experience delays and should consider using the Bronx-Whitestone or Robert F. Kennedy Bridges as an alternate route.

The closure is necessary to accommodate ongoing work to replace 67,000-square-feet of binder and asphalt overlay that has become uneven.

Applying new asphalt and binder is extremely weather sensitive and must be done under dry conditions to ensure that the binder properly adheres to the steel.
