At least one lane southbound will be opened to traffic from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and one lane northbound will be opened to traffic from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

During Monday and Tuesday night operations, due to the southbound lane closures, the southbound entrance at Exit 10 will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and southbound detour route signs will be posted through Nyack for the entrance at Route 59 near Exit  11.

During Monday and Tuesday night operations, due to the northbound lane closures, the entrance ramp from Broadway southbound in Tarrytown will also be closed from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. All traffic will be detoured to the entrance ramp from Route 119.
