Due to the weather, tonight’s operation has been postponed. A new advisory will be sent out when it has been rescheduled.

original travel advisory below

Motorists should expect an overnight lane closure on Tuesday night on Wellwood Avenue (Route 3) at Sunrise Highway (Route 27) in the Town of Babylon.

The southbound right lane on Wellwood Avenue will be closed beginning at 10 p.m. on Feb. 11 and reopening at 5 a.m. the following morning for maintenance to the overhead sign structures at both ends of the bridge.  

Electronic message signs are in the area to relay closure information to the traveling public.

As with most road and bridge projects, work may be cancelled, postponed, or prolonged due to inclement weather. NYSDOT appreciates the patience and cooperation of motorists and the local community while this project is undertaken. 

NYSDOT recently unveiled a new public service announcement and social media campaign focused on the importance of driving responsibly in work zones. The video highlights the importance of paying attention in work zones and obeying New York State’s “Move Over” laws.
