Major Deegan construction to affect commutes
Construction along the Major Deegan Expressway began Thursday night, affecting the commutes for many drivers.
Currently, three northbound lanes have been reduced to two from exits 3 to 5.
The work is part of the Department of Transportation's $133 million "Major Deegan Reconstruction Project."
The Major Deegan is the only main highway that leads to Yankee Stadium, and many drivers use it to get by for day-to-day activities. Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead and seek alternate routes if using the roadway.
The project is expected to take about two years to complete.
