BREAKING: All Southbound Lanes are Open from Exit 12 to Exit 9 – NYS Thruway Authority
ROCKLAND COUNTY, NY – The New York State Thruway Authority today announced that all southbound lanes of the Thruway (I-87/1-287) from exit 12 in West Nyack to exit 9 in Tarrytown, including the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge in Rockland County, have fully reopened to traffic following the successful completion of emergency bridge repairs. Beginning early this morning, crews safely and successfully removed severely damaged portions of the South Broadway overpass in South Nyack, which was struck by an over height tractor trailer on August 31.
Following multiple inspections this week, Thruway and consulting engineers determined that two damaged 102-foot-long girders – each weighing 50,000 pounds – and a portion of the concrete deck had to be removed to stabilize the overpass. To safely do that, all southbound lanes south of exit 12 were closed early this morning.
Work will continue on the South Broadway overpass tomorrow as crews will install temporary concrete barriers and fencing. The overpass is expected to reopen to alternating traffic early next week.
The Authority coordinated with state, county and local authorities on this operation.
