River Road Work 

TZC continues work near River Road in South Nyack, requiring single lane closures and brief, periodic traffic holds. Travelers should expect brief traffic stops between 7a and 5:30p, Monday to Friday. Flag persons are on site to facilitate the lane closings and maintain traffic safety. School buses and emergency vehicles are given priority throughout the closure period. Cyclists and pedestrians should follow flaggers’ instructions.

Shared Use Path

In preparation for the bridge’s bicycle/pedestrian path and overlooks, TZC will continue to install rebar and formwork on the northern side of the westbound span. At the Rockland Landing, a segment of the Esposito Trail from Clinton Avenue and South Franklin Street to Village Hall is closed for the construction of the side path. Pedestrians and cyclists are being detoured to South Broadway and through Elizabeth Place Park. The detour will be in place for up to two months. Additionally, crews will continue drilling and installing piles along Hillside Avenue, necessitating temporary lane closures. Flag persons will keep traffic moving by alternating the directional flow between east and west. Ramp construction will also continue for the new connection between Interchange 10 and Hillside Avenue.
