    One of the Major Deegan Expressway’s northbound travel lanes will be closed for two years as the highway is reconstructed.

    The expressway’s northbound side will be reduced to two travel lanes starting after Exit 3 at East 138th Street/Grand Concourse to past Exit 5 at 161st Street/Macombs Dam Bridge and the Macombs Dam Bridge.

    The changes will take place after the evening rush hour on Tuesday, July 14. The $133 million project will keep the lane closed for about two years.

    Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
