Paving could slow down Thousand Islands Bridge traffic

ALEXANDRIA BAY, NY — The Thousand Islands Bridge Authority (TIBA) will begin morning traffic control operations on Tuesday May 22 and Wednesday, May 23 on its U.S. Crossing beginning at 8:30 am and 10:00 am respectively.

On Tuesday morning asphalt is being applied to I-81 at the north end of the U.S. Crossing by the New York State Department of Transportation, followed by TIBA asphalt repair near the expansion joint at the south abutment on Wednesday also on the U.S. Crossing. Both projects will necessitate alternating one-way traffic flow across the American Span. In the event of rain work will take place on the immediate following days.

We appreciate your patience while recognizing our safety precautions and temporary traffic controls.
