Thu, 26 May 2016 22:24:42 GMT - To accommodate travelers during the busy Memorial Day weekend, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo recently announced that road and bridge construction projects on New York State highways will be suspended from 6 a.m. on Friday, May 27, to 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31. There will be slight variations for certain Thruway projects based on previous traffic volume.
