New Hyde Park Road will be restricted to two lanes beginning Monday, November 4th for approximately two weeks. One lane will be used for northbound traffic and one lane used for southbound traffic. During this time, vehicles will not be permitted to turn left on to Plaza Avenue when heading southbound on New Hyde Park Road during this temporary closure. The temporary lane closures are necessary to perform utility work in preparation for the elimination of the New Hyde Park Road railroad crossing. New Hyde Park Road should be restored to four lanes by November 18th.
