Driving on the Palisades Interstate Parkway today?
Well, don’t if you can help it. Lane closures are expected on the Palisades in the vicinity of Exit 8 (Route 59) while crews perform bridge maintenance today, from 9a-4:30p, weather permitting. (Sunny skies are being forecast.) Motorists should expect delays.
The New York State Department of Transportation advises drivers to use caution when traveling through the work zone area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including signs and flaggers. If you need extra incentive to drive slowly and carefully, remember that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
