The closure will be both north and southbound between Marble Avenue in Pleasantville and Manville Road in Thornwood.The state Department of Transportation plans on raising the parkway 6-12 inches so that excessive rain will no longer cause a problem. Drivers are urged to find alternative routes during the repair time.
