The New England Thruway (I-95) will undergo major rehabilitation including resurfacing and bridge repair as part of a $58.7 million project encompassing 14 miles of the highway in the Bronx, Pelham, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Harrison and Rye, the New York State Thruway Authority announced today.

The two-year project is underway now and is expected to conclude in June, 2016. It will include concrete pavement repair and resurfacing, rehabilitation of six bridges, guiderail replacements and cleaning of culvert and draining structures. Currently, the project is focused on concrete pavement repair and bridge rehabilitation in the New Rochelle area.

Overnight lane closures will occur Monday, November 3 through Friday, November 7 southbound between exit 22 (Port Chester-Rye-Midland Avenue) and exit 14 (Hutchinson River Parkway South – Whitestone Bridge). Single lane closures will begin at 8:00 p.m. and will turn into double lane closures at 11:00 p.m. with all closures to be concluded by 7:00 a.m. the next morning.

On Friday, November 7, single lane closures will begin at 9:00 p.m. and will expand into double lane closures by 12:00 a.m. with all closures expected to conclude by 9:00 a.m.

There will also be overnight lane closures northbound Monday, November 3 through Wednesday, November 5 between exit 18A (Mamaroneck – Fenimore Road, Mamaroneck – Mamaroneck Avenue East) and exit 22 (Port Chester-Rye-Midland Avenue). Single lane closures will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will turn into double lane closures at 11:00 p.m. with all closures to be concluded by 7:00 a.m. the next morning.

All construction projects on the Thruway system are completed under rigorous safety protocols. This section of I-95 experiences heavy daily traffic volume and the Thruway Authority is working closely with the New York State Police to strictly enforce work zone speed limits and other traffic laws. Since full implementation of the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, work zone related accidents on the Thruway have decreased an average of 12% annually.

“This project will create greatly improved driving conditions for New England Thruway motorists, but as with any road construction, traffic patterns and conditions will vary throughout the project and drivers need to be alert and careful in construction zones at all times,” said New York State Thruway Authority Executive Director Thomas J. Madison. “We are grateful for the close collaboration of the New York State Police and other law enforcement agencies in order to help ensure the safety of motorists and workers during the project.”

“The State Police put great emphasis on highway safety and safeguarding the men and women working to rebuild New York’s roadways,” said New York State Police Troop T Commander Major Evelyn P. Mallard. “Throughout the duration of this project, Troopers will be actively enforcing the vehicle and traffic laws with the goal of minimizing traffic incidents.”

The New England Thruway rehabilitation project is being completed in accordance with the requirements of Governor Cuomo’s Driver’s First Initiative, which prioritizes the convenience of motorists and ensures that disruptions are as minimal as possible for drivers at highway and bridge projects across the state.

The Thruway Authority will inform motorists of specific lane closures and new traffic patterns through the use of variable message signs (VMS) located throughout the project work zones.
