UPDATE, 3:05 P.M. - The Sprain Brook Parkway is backed up for several miles southbound from I-287 to the Cross County Parkway, according to Main Street Connect reporter Danny LoPriore. Cars tried to get on and off the highway via the Jackson Avenue exit, which created a backup there from Route 9A to Central Avenue.
The parkway was also closed southbound earlier today at the Central Park Avenue exit and all traffic had to exit the highway at that point.
