Southbound, there will be a single-lane closure beginning near Jamaica Avenue, and a full roadway closure between Exit 6 (Jamaica Avenue) and Exit 5 (Atlantic Avenue). Traffic will be diverted onto the service road, and motorists will be able to get back on the expressway near 95th Street.
Northbound, all traffic will be shifted to the west onto the closed southbound roadway in the area beneath the overhead railroad bridges and will return to the northbound roadway near 90th Avenue.
