NYC DOT Announces Partial Closure of Southbound Henry Hudson Parkway Between West 86th And West 89th Streets for Repairs

Southbound right lane will be closed between West 89th and West 86th Street from Saturday evening through the morning of June 24th for important repairs

Southbound entrance ramps to the parkway from West 125th Street to West 96th Street to be closed between 6 and 10 a.m. daily; motorists are advised to use alternate routes

As the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) continues to address roadways across the five boroughs, the agency announced a partial closure related to contracted subsurface repairs on a short, Parks Department-owned portion of the southbound Henry Hudson Parkway beginning tomorrow evening, providing a safer, smoother roadway for Manhattan drivers. Tomorrow evening, Saturday, June 14th, the southbound right lane will be closed until 5 a.m., Tuesday, June 24. During this period, the southbound entrance ramps to the parkway between West 125th Street and West 96th Street will be closed between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. daily, with traffic diverted to local streets. This partial closure will allow for a targeted subsurface work in an area requiring maintenance. During this project, NYPD traffic agents and Economic Development Corporation (EDC)-provided pedestrian safety mangers will be posted at key affected intersections. Motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible and use alternate routes.

This year, DOT has addressed more than 372,908 potholes across the city, including more than 59,010 in Manhattan, and resurfaced more than 327 lane miles. For more information about DOT’s ongoing efforts to address potholes and maintain more than 6,000 miles of roadway, please visit, and please report any pothole condition to The Daily Pothole or to 311.
