TARRYTOWN - The ramp to get onto the Tappan Zee Bridge in Tarrytown is now closed for the next four years as construction continues on the new bridge.

Prior to the closure, 11,000 cards were sent out to residents and people who work in the area to alert them to the change.

The ramp was closed on Dec. 5, but then reopened about a week later after several major delays. State officials say they decided to wait until after winter and the busy holiday season to close it again. But with spring arriving and construction back on track, officials say the ramp must be closed to keep drivers and bridge workers safe.

Traffic will now be shifted north. The closed ramp will be used to store equipment and will eventually become part of the New York State Thruway.
