NEW YORK (AP) - The state transportation department says a construction project will be tying up the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx for about two years.

Starting after the Thursday evening rush-hour, part of the transportation artery will be reduced from three northbound lanes to two.

The bottleneck will start at Exit 3, also known as East 138th Street and the Grand Concourse.

It will extend beyond Exit 5, which goes to 161st Street and the Macombs (muh-KOHMZ’) Dam Bridge.

The bridge connects West 155th Street in Manhattan with East 161st Street and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx.

It’s a major route from Manhattan to Yankee Stadium.
