The repairs are part of a $6.2-million NY Works Project and are expected to close lanes of the expressway during off-peak hours until December, according to a department news release.
Two lanes of the expressway will be closed overnight, from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m., with one lane open for motorists, first beginning in the westbound lanes.
In shorter segments of the 11-mile long project, a single lane could be closed for repairs between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with two lanes open for traffic.
Once repair work is completed in westbound lanes, work will begin in the eastbound lanes, with work scheduled for the same off-peak hours, the release said.
