Major Throgs Neck Bridge construction under way

Commuters taking the Throgs Neck Bridge are going to need patience or a new route for the next few weeks as major construction gets under

THE BRONX - Commuters taking the Throgs Neck Bridge are going to need patience or a new route for the next few weeks as major construction gets under way.

Crews have closed the center lane on the Queens-bound side to replace 3,000 feet of the span with new asphalt and binders. Officials say the work will take place around the clock for about three weeks.

An additional side lane will also be blocked off during overnight hours. Road work on the Whitestone Bridge will be put on hold to alleviate congestion.

Motorists are urged to use the Whitestone or RFK bridges as alternatives.
