The New York State Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Design-Build team (Yonkers Contracting Company, HNTB, and HVEA) are working to improve mobility, reliability, and safety for travelers along the Route 17 and Route 32 corridor at, Exit 131.
As part of our commitment to providing the public with timely project information, we are sending this newsletter to inform stakeholders about upcoming construction activities. We have also included contact information for our public outreach liaison below. Should you wish to no longer receive future project updates, we have provided a convenient unsubscribe feature with this email.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Traffic on Route 32 is scheduled to be shifted west onto the newly constructed roads and bridges during the week of December 17, 2018 (see graphic above). The number of lanes will remain the same and additional signage will be in place to guide motorists through the new traffic pattern. Please proceed through this area with care and observe the posted speed limits as there will be ongoing construction activities in this area over the coming months.
The left lane is a dedicated through-lane from Exit 130 eastbound to the NYS Thruway toll booths. Eastbound traffic on Route 17 will remain shifted onto the paved median to maintain a safe and unobstructed work zone. Local traffic should use the right lane only as exits are not permitted from the left lane.
The Route 17 westbound ramp from Route 32 northbound will be relocated north of the Route 6 overpass (see graphic below). The new traffic pattern is expected to be in place during the week of December 17, 2018. Additional signage will be in place to guide travelers through the new traffic pattern.
SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
Please use caution when traveling through these areas as the number of lanes may be reduced or temporarily closed. Please allow for additional travel time or seek alternate routes as slow-moving traffic is likely to occur. Pay close attention to posted speed limits, construction signs, and workers. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, drivers are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of one’s license.
