Pothole repairs to continue this week

Work will occur after peak travel period

The New York State Thruway Authority has announced that pothole repairs to I-87/I-287, between Nyack and Spring Valley, will continue between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m., beginning on the evening of Tuesday, March 4, and continuing nightly for a period of approximately two weeks.

Intense winter weather and the freeze/thaw cycle have created a significant pothole problem on the Thruway in Rockland County, as well as other areas along the 570-mile roadway.

Crews will perform isolated pavement repairs in all three lanes of I-87/I-287 between mileposts 18 and 24, in both directions. Beginning in the southbound lanes on Tuesday at 7 p.m., motorists can expect single and double lane closures as necessary to complete the work. All lanes will be re-opened prior to the morning peak travel period.

In case of inclement weather, the work may be postponed.

Electronic signboards and the Highway Advisory Radio (530 AM) will update motorists about possible delays.

The Thruway Authority appreciates motorists’ patience during this emergency work.
