Public Safety Advisory | NYS Thruway Closure Saturday


Dear Members of the Fordham Community:

The southbound lanes of the New York State Thruway will be closed for repairs at the Mario M. Cuomo (formerly Tappan Zee) Bridge—Exit 12—as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, September 9, and will remain closed for at least 16 hours. The closure may affect individuals commuting to the Rose Hill and Westchester campuses on Saturday.

All southbound traffic will be diverted at Exit 12. The bridge will be closed to all traffic going from Rockland to Westchester County until repairs are completed. The Thruway Authority estimates that the bridge will reopen late Saturday afternoon or evening. All northbound lanes  will remain open for those traveling from Westchester to Rockland County.

Anyone with questions about the closure may call (718) 817-2222 and ask to speak with a duty supervisor.

Robert Fitzer, Associate Vice President
Fordham University Public Safety
