The state’s Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) announced a temporary, single-lane closure on the Van Wyck Expressway starting Tuesday.

According to the agency, the northbound Van Wyck Expressway two-lane Exit 10 Ramp leading to westbound Grand Central Parkway will be reduced to one travel lane starting at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 22 through Monday, Feb. 28 at 5 a.m.

The closure — which could be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather — will allow NYSDOT to work on the ramp as part of its Kew Gardens Interchange Phase 4 project.

Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.

For up-to-date travel information, drivers should call 511, visit www.511NY.org or download the free 511NY mobile app.
