Throgs Neck Bridge Weekend Work: Oct. 18-21: Queens-bound lane closures

One Queens-bound lane at the Throgs Neck Bridge will be closed from the toll plaza across bridge beginning 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18 through 5 a.m. Monday, Oct.21 for binder and asphalt replacement work.

An additional Queens-bound lane will be closed during overnight hours. The closures are necessary to accommodate ongoing work to replace 67,000-square-feet of binder and asphalt overlay that has become uneven.

Motorists should use Bronx-Whitestone Bridge or RFK Bridge as an alternate.

Work is dependent on good weather.
