Road work to tie up area around Stadium

Those traveling to Yankee Stadium by car should take heed of an advisory from the New York State Department of Transportation.

The three northbound travel lanes on the Major Deegan Expressway will be reduced to two travel lanes starting after Exit 3 (East 138th Street/Grand Concourse) to beyond Exit 5 (161st Street/Macombs Dam Bridge) and the Macombs Dam Bridge.

This new configuration began after the evening rush hour Thursday and will last for approximately two years. Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead and seek alternate routes.

Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license. It is imperative that motorists drive carefully through this construction zone, for their own safety and the safety of workers.
