THE BRONX - Bronx residents planning to stay local this weekend may run into some travel hiccups.

The Feast of Saint Theresa will be going on throughout the weekend until midnight on Sunday, shutting down Saint Theresa Avenue between the Hutchinson River Parkway and Hobart Avenue. Extra foot traffic and heavy traffic is expected.

The Bronx Dominican Day Parade will also create some congestion Sunday. The Grand Concourse will be closed from East 178th Street to East 166th Street for the big event.

Drivers may also run into problems at the Queens-Midtown Tunnel where one tune will be closed for roadwork, and the other will take on two-way traffic.

Weekend track work is planned on the rails, and the Metro-North will use shuttle service on the Hudson Line as it continues with repairs following last week's train derailment.
