Default White Plains Show travel advisory

If anyone was planning to go to the White Plains show this weekend from NJ, please keep in mind the old Tappan Zee Bridge is set to be blown up Sat morning. I287/87 is supposed to be closed starting at 9am.

And relic cards will be created from the rubble as some athlete in some sport drove over the bridge during their career.

I will add that I am glad they put in the electronic tolls. It caught me by surprise when it first went in as I had a rental and was not expecting it. However, the approach to the toll booths after crossing the river was always a challenge, that and the downhill approach from NJ just before the bridge.

Are there any routes from NJ to White Plains that are worth trying on Saturday.

Or should I just wait till Sunday to go out there?

I'm working Saturday, so I'll have to go Sunday. Be aware, the Weather report mentioned the S word for Sunday.

It depends on where you're coming from but the Bear Mountain Bridge is a nice approach from the north.

You can swing over the GWB and up 87 North, then connect to 287 (which you ultimately need to travel upon anyway to reach White Plains)
