Date: Apr 06, 2015
Press Release Number: 45-2015

Work Begins Tuesday, April 7

Starting Tuesday, April 7, the Port Authority will resume work on a project to repave a section of the northbound and southbound lanes of the Palisades Interstate Parkway near the George Washington Bridge.

Work will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 5 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, and no major traffic impacts at the bridge are anticipated during the initial stages of the work. While construction may require closure of some toll lanes, cash and E-ZPass lanes will be maintained at all times. Subsequent phases of work will require different hours of work and, at times, overnight full closures of the Palisades Interstate Parkway ramps to and from the bridge.

The Port Authority will update drivers in real-time regarding travel times on the George Washington Bridge’s upper and lower level through e-alerts. Customers can sign up for alerts at http://www.paalerts.com/. Travelers also may call 511 or visit 511NY.org or 511NJ.org for further information.
