ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y. — Traffic on the Thousand Islands Bridge will be reduced to one-way during overnight hours starting May 6.

The Thousand Islands Bridge Authority said in a release that its crews will be carrying out annual cleaning and maintenance throughout the bridge system. To allow that, the bridge will operate alternating one-way travel from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. Sunday evening to Friday mornings starting May 6. Traffic is expected to return to normal June 22.

The authority said no traffic-slowing work is planned during daytime hours or during weekends or during Canada’s May 21 Victoria Day holiday. However, the authority added, “momentary delays may be experienced.”
