SOUTH NYACK, N.Y. -- Tappan Zee Constructors will continue building noise barriers along the New York State Thruway in South Nyack next week causing exit and on-ramps closures along the southbound Thruway.
Testing of the project’s temporary all-electronic toll-collection system in Rockland will continue throughout the coming week near on-ramps to the southbound Thruway at Exit 10 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W) and Exit 11 (Nyack-South Nyack-U.S. Route 9W). The testing will necessitate closing the on-ramps during the overnights of Friday, Feb. 12, and Tuesday, Feb. 16, through Saturday, Feb. 20.
Drivers will be directed to use the Exit 12 (West Nyack-N.Y. Route 303–Palisades Center Drive) on-ramp from Route 303 in West Nyack. Signs will be posted to advise motorists of the detour route. In addition, the work will require the overnight closing of up to three lanes of the southbound Thruway throughout the remainder of this week and during the coming week.
The work includes constructing noise barrier foundations along the southbound Thruway between the South Broadway bridge and River Road.
After the foundations are established, concrete panels that form the noise barriers will be installed. The barriers will be treated with sound-absorbing material to further reduce traffic noise to the nearby community.
TZC will also continue constructing foundation walls for the future highway and shared-use path along the northbound Thruway in South Nyack. The operation is scheduled to continue in the coming months.
