I84 West will be closed at the Port Jervis exit overnight. Traffic will be deverted through Matamoras

PORT JERVIS — The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that Interstate 84 westbound in Port Jervis will be closed overnight Monday for bridge repairs between Exit 1 (Route 6/Route 23) in New York and Exit 53 (Route 6/US Route 209) in Pennsylvania. Westbound traffic will be detoured from 11 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The following are directions for the I-84 westbound detour, courtesy the state DOT:

- All westbound traffic will exit I-84 at Exit 1 and turn left onto Route 6/Slate Hill Road.
- Continue straight on Route 6/East Main Street for 1.8 miles.
- Turn left onto Route 6/Pike Street.
- Continue straight on Route 6/Pennsylvania Avenue for one mile.
- Turn left onto the ramp for I-84 westbound.

I-84 eastbound traffic will not be affected by the closures.

The closure is part of a $40 million project to rehabilitate the eastbound and westbound bridges carrying I-84 over the Delaware and Neversink rivers, as well as over Route 15 and Route 16. Construction of the westbound bridges is expected to be finished in December.

Next spring, traffic in both directions will use the new westbound bridges while the eastbound bridges are rehabilitated. The entire project is scheduled to be completed late next year.

Drivers should consider alternate routes during peak travel periods. Motorists are asked to use caution when traveling through the work area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including work zone signs and flaggers.

Motorists are also reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of the driver's license.
