Outerbridge Crossing Planned Weekly Construction


NEW GOETHALS SPAN WILL OPEN TO NEW YORK-BOUND TRAFFIC ON SATURDAY, NEW JERSEY-BOUND TRAFFIC ON SUNDAY; OLD GOETHALS BRIDGE CLOSING PERMANENTLY FRIDAY NIGHT

Date: Jun 08, 2017

The 89-year-old Goethals Bridge will cease operations at 10 p.m. Friday, while workers reconfigure access approach lanes so the new replacement Goethals Bridge can open in stages on Saturday and Sunday.

The first of the new bridge’s two spans will open to New York-bound traffic during the late afternoon of Saturday, June 10, and to New Jersey-bound traffic during the late afternoon of Sunday, June 11.

The Port Authority will keep the Bayonne Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing open through the weekend to provide alternate routes for travelers between Staten Island and New Jersey.

The first of the new Goethals Bridge’s twin spans will carry both westbound and eastbound traffic until the second span opens in 2018. At that point, eastbound and westbound traffic will be separated onto the two spans.
