INWOOD — Inwood motorists, take note: your morning commute will continue to be complicated by re-routed traffic and street construction until at least mid-May or June, when the MTA is expected to start wrapping up ongoing track and station repairs along the 1 line between 220th and 207th streets.

But until that happens, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays and 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on weekends, two cranes will be stationed along stretches of Broadway, W. 216th and W. 218th streets.

On Fridays and weekends during work hours, W. 216th Street between Broadway and 9th Ave., W. 218th Street between Broadway and 9th Ave. and 10th Avenue between W. 216th and W. 218th will be closed to traffic.

Stretches of Broadway from W. 218th to W. 219th, and Broadway between W. 216th and W. 218th, will maintain lanes for both northbound and southbound traffic during construction, while Broadway between W. 219th and W. 220th, and Broadway from W. 220th to 9th Ave. will be designated for northbound traffic only.
