Steel Girder Painting

TZC is preparing to paint the westbound span steel girders over River Road in South Nyack.

Beginning on Monday, September 24, travelers should expect brief traffic stops between 7a and 5:30p, Monday to Friday. The temporary stops are required to safely install the painting platform over the roadway. Flag persons will be on site to facilitate the lane closings and maintain traffic safety.

Weather permitting, this operation is scheduled to be completed on Tuesday, October 2.
