Two westbound lanes on the Long Island Expressway will be closed between exits 70 and 71 tonight and Thursday night as workers perform “major repairs” of the Halsey Manor Road Bridge, a New York State Department of Transportation spokesperson said Tuesday.

One lane will remain open between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. both nights (weather permitting) while the repairs are made to the bridge, which was recently damaged by a truck in a crash. Drivers are urged to use alternate routes or they will experience delays.
