Several lanes of Throgs Neck Bridge to close for six weekends

Weekends this summer could be a pain in the neck for drivers who depend on one local bridge.

Starting Friday, July 12, several Queens-bounds lanes of the Throgs Neck Bridge will be closed from 10 p.m. on Friday through 5 a.m. on Monday for construction work over six weekends, according to the MTA. The work will take place over consecutive weekends, weather permitting.

One Queens-bound lane will be closed from the Bronx toll plaza south of the Queens side of the bridge during the work. Two lanes to Queens will be open during the day and one lane will be open overnight.

The construction will replace 67,000 square feet of asphalt overlay that has become uneven.

“After reviewing all of the options, the least impact to the customer is to do the work on weekends and overnight when traffic is lighter,” said Throgs Neck Facility Engineer Edmond Knightly, “When the work is finished, motorists will be rewarded with a smoother, more even riding surface.”

As an alternative during the construction, motorists can use the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, which will have three lanes open southbound to Queens, or the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.
