Traffic alerts issued for Hutchinson River Parkway and Route 17Posted: Updated:
A traffic alert has been issued for two of the Hudson Valley’s busiest roadways.
Drivers can expect delays on the Hutchinson River Parkway as there will double lane closures through the end of the week while crews perform roadwork.
The state DOT says those closures will be southbound between exit 23 for Mamaroneck Road and exit 19 for Wilmot Road in Scarsdale and New Rochelle. Traffic will be diverted to the right shoulder on the parkway from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Friday.
In Orange County, single lane closures are expected on Route 17 in the towns of Blooming Grove, Monroe and Woodbury Thursday morning.
Road work is taking place on the eastbound side between exit 139 for Museum Village Road and exit 130-A for Route 6. The construction will be from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Officials say drivers should always remember to slow down and drive responsibly when passing work zones or they could be fined.
