Those lanes will be closed for about three weeks at a time while drivers are encouraged to use the Northern State Parkway, according to the Department of Transportation.

Beginning Sunday, May 14, from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., all westbound lanes of I-495 will be closed from Exit 39 (Glen Cove Road) to Exit 37 (Willis Avenue) to facilitate bridge maintenance.

Westbound lanes will be closed for approximately three weeks during this period, weather permitting, and traffic will be detoured to North Service Road.

Once the westbound lane maintenance is complete, the eastbound lanes of the LIE will be closed for an additional three weeks between Exits 37 and 39 from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

Traffic during the eastbound lane closure will be detoured onto South Service Road.

Drivers are encouraged to plan accordingly and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines for speeding in work zones are doubled, authorities have warned.
