DOT: Closures on LIE, service roads for cleaning, repairs

A heads up to drivers who travel on the Long Island Expressway and its service roads overnight.



Drivers can expect single lane closures between exit 32 at the Nassau/Queens border and exit 52 at Commack Road.



The Department of Transportation says cleaning and repairs are needed on drainage structures to prevent flooding.



The work will take place overnights Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., and is expected to last until early summer.



Both east and westbound lanes on the LIE are affected, as are the service roads.
