THE BRONX - Some construction projects on the roads and rails could slow you down this weekend.

One lane will be blocked in both directions on the Major Deegan Expressway approaching the Cross Bronx, and it will be subject to full closures of up to 15 minutes during overnight hours.

The Pelham Bay Greek Festival on Saturday and Sunday will close some roads in the area around the Greek American Institute at 3573 Bruckner Blvd. Attendees are encouraged to take mass transit because parking will be limited.

Track work is also scheduled on several subway lines. Straphangers are advised to check changing schedules throughout the weekend before heading out.

Alternate side of the street parking rules will be in effect.
