2-year work to begin on Bronx-Whitestone exit

The 3rd Avenue exit on the Whitestone Expressway is slated to be closed next month for construction.

The 3rd Avenue exit, the last exit in Queens before entering onto the Bronx-bound Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, will be closed to all traffic beginning Jan. 7 as part of a $109 million reconstruction of the bridge’s Queens approach, the MTA said.

Separate car and truck detours will be in place while the northbound 3rd Avenue exit ramp is closed. Signs will be in place and traffic agents will be on hand when the detours begin. The closure is expected to remain in place for about two years.

Passenger vehicles driving from the Bronx-bound Cross Island Parkway will have to exit at Utopia Parkway (Exit 33N), and those driving from the northbound Whitestone Expressway will get off past the 20th Avenue exit and merge onto the Cross Island Parkway. All commercial vehicles must exit the Whitestone Expressway at 20th Avenue (Exit 15).

Somebody is a stalker. Gary, want to talk? I'm open for discussion. You obviously know me, so why not introduce yourself. Who are you? Lets discuss without all these other "fakes" trying to instigate problems. So tell me why the animosity ?

Al why even bother. This is obviously a poor soul with nothing better to do than stalk you. He could be dangerous! You should report this immediately , just for precautions. I would file a report if I were you.
