Throgs Neck to close part of center lane

Part of the center lane of the Throgs Neck Bridge will be closed on around the clock starting at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, to permit roadwork.

MTA Bridge and Tunnel officials said the shutdown was necessary to permit the application of asphalt to about one third of a mile of the highway surface.

The road project is dependent on dry weather and temperatures above 40 degrees and is expected to require two weeks. Motorists can use the Bronx-Whitestone bridge in the meantime.

Meanwhile, the Throgs Neck’s southbound lane into Queens will also be shut down from 10 p.m.to 5 a.m. weekdays and 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weekends. During this period, large trucks classified as over dimensional will be banned from the bridge and will have to use an alternate routes.

People rejected increased bogus fees that banks recently tried to impose. The banks have had to back down.Do the same thing with MTA. Order photoblocker spray to put on your license plate and drive through the tolls. If everyone stopped paying the tolls there is nothing they could do. It 6.50 now and they think we,re so stupid that we will just keep paying. To hell with the MTA and their excessive tolls!
