Detours

Staten Island Ramp Closures

To further advance construction, the Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Project requires closure of certain on- and off-ramps that connect the bridge to local Staten Island streets

Off-Ramp Closure

Travelers who normally exit southbound Route 440 using Exit 13-Richmond Terrace/Trantor Place, will now use Exit 12-Forest Ave and Willow Road for local street access.
