Traffic congestion is projected to impact access to White Plains from Tarrytown Road, also known as Route 119 in Greenburgh.
On Wednesday, April 4, work was to begin on two bridges that carry Metro-North commuter trains over Main Street and Hamilton Avenue in White Plains.
Greenburgh Police Chief Chris McNerney said, "The MTA will be undertaking a major renovation of the White Plains Metro-North train station."
Total time for this renovation is projected to be approximately two years, McNerney said.
"We anticipate that the first phase of this project (beginning tomorrow) will cause severe traffic congestion on Route 119 for the next six weeks," McNerney said.
This will result in lane closures on Main Street and Hamilton Avenue in White Plains, the police chief said.
Please consider alternative routes during this time period.
We expect that that traffic will be impacted making access to the downtown via Tarrytown Road difficult," McNerney warned.
Please consider using alternate routes to enter the city during this time. Some include, Westchester Ave, Westchester Mall Pl, No. Broadway and Bryant Avenue, all which are accessible via Interstate-287.
