TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The entrance ramp to the northbound Tappan Zee Bridge from Route 9 has closed, and will remain so for four years to come, to facilitate construction on the new bridge.
As CBS 2’s Tony Aiello reported, the closure of the busy on-ramp has brought a fresh round of concern for residents and motorists.
The New York State Thruway Authority says the ramp in Tarrytown will be closed until 2018. Drivers will be diverted onto Route 119. Electronic signs will alert them to any problems.
