GOETHALS BRIDGE NEW JERSEY-BOUND LANES TO BE CLOSED THIS WEEKEND, MAY 18-21, TO ALLOW FOR BRIDGE’S NEW JERSEY-BOUND SPAN TO OPEN MONDAY MORNING

Date: May 17, 2018
Press Release Number: 85-2018

The New Jersey-bound lanes of the Goethals Bridge will be closed this weekend, May 18 to 21, to accommodate construction work that will allow the bridge’s westbound span to open no later than early Monday morning, May 21.

The bridge’s current New Jersey-bound lanes will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 18, and will reopen no later than 4 a.m. Monday, May 21.

The closing will allow the existing ramps – which now serve New Jersey-bound traffic on the eastbound span – to be realigned to the westbound structure. During the closing, travelers heading into New Jersey will be diverted to the Outerbridge Crossing or the Bayonne Bridge. The bridge’s New York-bound lanes will not be impacted.

To receive real time traffic updates, travelers should register for Bridge and Tunnel Alerts at www.paalerts.com, call 511 or visit www.511NY.org or www.511NJ.org.
