Throgs Neck Bridge Bronx-Bound Weekend Lane Closures For Milling and Paving Work: Fri. 9/14-Mon. 9/17

Up to two Bronx-bound lanes will be closed this weekend at the Throgs Neck Bridge starting Friday night, September 14th through Monday morning, September 17th, 2018. At least one lane will remain open to Bronx-bound traffic. Queens-bound lanes are unaffected by this work.

Weekend work requires the following lane closures:

• One Bronx-bound lane will be closed around-the clock, from 10 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.

• A second Bronx-bound lane will be closed on Friday and Saturday nights, from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. and on Sunday into Monday from 10 p.m. to 5 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 for the latest information on this planned work.
