For about 12 weeks, lanes between Merrick Road and Hempstead Turnpike could be closed in one or both directions, northbound and/or southbound, depending on the work being done, said Eileen Peters, spokeswoman on Long Island.

The detour for northbound travelers will be to Hicksville Road (Route 107) at all east/west roadways, then back to the expressway at Hempstead Turnpike, the DOT said. And southbound travelers will be directed to Hempstead Turnpike to Hicksville Road at all east/west roadways.
