Motorists are being advised that there will be weekday single- and double-lane closures on the Saw Mill River Parkway for more than a week due to construction.
The work is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 16 and continue until Tuesday, July 24 on the parkway between the New York City Line and Exit 17 (Ashford Avenue), weather permitting.
Lane closures are expected on the northbound side of the parkway from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lane closures are expected on the southbound side from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes where possible.
Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the work zone area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including signs and flaggers.
Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
