The overnight closures, between Burnside Avenue and Rockaway Turnpike, are expected to last around three weeks, weather permitting, said the state Department of Transportation.

Related roadwork will also be conducted at adjacent intersections and on sections of Peninsula and Bay boulevards, with Nassau Expressway traffic detoured around the construction work, the DOT said.
