From Monday through Wednesday, two right lanes on the Thruway will be closed, with a third being closed at 11 p.m. southbound from exit 11 to exit 9. The southbound exit 9 ramp will also be closed, with all lanes reopening each morning at 5 a.m. the following morning.
On Thursday, May 16, two left lanes will be closed beginning at 9 p.m., with the third closing at 11 p.m. Those lanes will reopen at 5 a.m. The following day, two lanes will be closed at 10 p.m. with a third closing at 11:59 p.m. before reopening at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning.
During the closures, motorists in the area can expect delays, and a detour has been posted for those looking to take the exit 9 ramp.
