Hofstra provides shuttle buses as unispan walkway remains closed after truck crash
Hofstra University students who need to cross Hempstead Turnpike this weekend can hop aboard shuttle buses.
The university is providing rides from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as its unispan bridge remains closed.
The Hempstead Turnpike was closed for hours Thursday after a truck hit the bridge in the afternoon.
The walkway is expected to remain closed for weeks.
Repairs will be done overnight to reduce traffic delays.
