Overnight lane closures to affect Mario Cuomo BridgePosted: Updated:
Officials have issued a traffic alert for drivers using the Mario Cuomo Bridge.
Construction crews are realigning the southbound Thruway traffic lanes, and the traffic shift will require multiple overnight lane and ramp closures through the end of the week.
At least one lane will stay open in both directions, except during the early morning hours Tuesday near exit 9. That's when state police will temporarily hold southbound traffic to help workers shift barriers and equipment.
Overnight work tonight will require a temporary closure of the exit 9 southbound off-ramp.
Drivers will be detoured to take exit 8A.
