The Holland and Brooklyn Battery tunnels will close as of 2 p.m., announced Governor Andrew Cuomo in a press conference this morning, but as of yet the Tappan Zee Bridge remains open.
The NYS Thruway Authority posted a speed reduction on the Tappan Zee Bridge of 35 mph due to high winds. If sustained winds reach a speed of 60 mph or greater, the bridge will be closed to traffic in both directions.
“To ensure motorist safety during Hurricane Sandy, a decision may be made at any time to close the bridge should conditions warrant," the Thruway release says.
For now, empty trailers are prohibited from travelling the span.
