Attention Motorists Using the George Washington Bridge (GWB) During the Overnight Hours:
Beginning Monday, June 16, The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will resume a steel deck improvement project on the upper level of the GWB that may cause significant overnight delays.
Three of four upper level bridge lanes will be closed in either the eastbound or westbound direction during the hours below:
- Monday to Thursday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following morning
- Friday night from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday morning
- The work will also require several 10-15 minutes traffic holds during the hours above
Passenger vehicles should use the GWB lower level (which will be fully open to cash and E-ZPass) to minimize their delay OR consider seeking an alternate route. Trucks are required to use the upper level at all times. Highway message signs, 511 and traffic reports will advise motorists in advance which direction will be under construction (on any given night). Visit our website for the most up-to-date closure schedule and project details.
For regional traffic conditions, call 511 or visit www.511NY.org or www.511NJ.org. For real-time traffic updates at the GWB and other Port Authority crossings, register for Bridge & Tunnel Alerts.
