WEEKEND THROGS NECK BRIDGE WORK CANCELLED

Weekend construction work to begin replacing 67,000-square-feet of binder and asphalt overlay on the Queens-bound Throgs Neck Bridge is canceled due to unsuitable weather forecasts.

The work, which is scheduled to be done over a total of six weekends, will be rescheduled. 

This work is heavily weather-dependent. The contractor cannot apply new asphalt in rainy weather or in extreme humidity. Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at http://www.mymtaalerts.com/Signup.aspx and check the MTA Bridges and Tunnels homepage each Thursday afternoon for the latest information on this planned work.
