Traffic on the Tappan Zee Bridge has cleared after construction work Wednesday morning backed up traffic for miles southbound on the New York State Thruway, police said.
Construction crews working in the middle of the bridge wrapped up around midday and traffic has returned to normal, State Police at Tarrytown said.
Traffic started backing up about 6 a.m., according to News12, and by late morning Wednesday, state Thruway officials said southbound delays had stretched to the Interstate 287 interchange.
The construction closed two lanes bound for Westchester County and snarled the morning commute.
