New York State Thruway officials have closed the new Tappan Zee Bridge to all trucks and buses after two tractor-trailers overturned on the bridge.

The two tractor-trailers flipped over on the northbound side of the bridge around 1:30 p.m. Friday, blocking two right lanes, said state police.

The ban was issued after another tractor-trailer flipped over on the northbound side around 10 a.m. Friday.

The banned vehicles include tractor-trailers, buses, and motorcycles, state police said.

The Thruway Authority has also issued a travel warning, encouraging residents to stay off the roads unless necessary.
