Traffic Pattern Shift at Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Staten Island-bound Toll Plaza

Starting this weekend, a change in traffic pattern will be in place on the westbound (to Staten Island) toll plaza coming off the Upper and Lower Levels of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The change is necessary to accommodate the next stage of work for installation of the Cashless Tolling structures and associated systems. 

As with the previous stage, several toll lanes will be closed at a time to accommodate the work zone activity. All lanes on the upper and lower levels of the bridge itself will be maintained during peak hours.

Work includes roadway replacement, demolition, excavation and concrete placement, as well as electrical and drainage systems and new signage. Cashless Toll collection is set to start in the summer of 2017 at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Motorists are advised to allow additional travel time. 

Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at www.mta.info and check the Bridges and Tunnels homepage or Facebook page for the latest information on this planned work.

    Typically, work performed by National Grid will begin with the installation of new gas pipe either in the street or sidewalk.  The excavation required will be backfilled at the end of each day.  Steel plates will be used to cover any excavations left open
   
    allow vehicular traffic, and provide access to driveways, steps, and walkways.
                     
    The entire work area will be kept clean and orderly, and attempts will be made to keep noise, dust, and debris to a minimum.  All material required on site will be stored neatly in designated areas.
   
   
                     
    All or part of your gas service may have to be replaced.  In order to complete this work, we must gain access to your home at the point where the service enters the building (basement, crawlspace, etc.).  If this is the case, you will be contacted by a
   
    National Grid representative to make an appointment.
                     
                     
                     
    Some excavations may need to remain open until all gas services have been transferred, at which point the old main will be retired and the openings backfilled.
   
   
    All street & sidewalk surfaces affected by the construction will be repaved to ensure a smooth surface.  Temporary asphalt pavement will be used until all National Grid work is complete and permanent restoration can be performed.
   
   
    Concrete openings should be restored within 21 days, with the exception of work done in mid-winter.  Some delays may occur due to inclement weather or when the temperature is too cold to pour concrete.

MTA Bridges & Tunnel Notification of work on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

The start of toll plaza construction activities in the Upper Level westbound toll plaza will begin on Tuesday, January 10th.  This work requires a barricaded work zone to set up the systems and ganrty structures necessary for future Cashless Tolling conversion at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, set for summer 2017.  The prep work is scheduled to start Tuesday, January 10th and will continue through June, in advance of the switch to Cashless. The MTA Bridge team will be monitoring traffic and safety, and doing everything possible to mitigate any traffic issues.  Work will also include replacement of concrete pavement, new drainage, etc.

The work area will initially be located in the westbound plaza far left toll lanes (two-to-three toll lanes in the first stage).  The area will be reconstructed in stages to maintain optimal traffic flow.  After a standard period of motorist adjustment to the new traffic pattern shift we can expect moderate impact; that said, note that there will be no construction on the eastbound (to Bklyn) side to impact the morning rush; work is westbound only.  Also, there is no loss in traffic lanes on the bridge span itself for peak periods -just the toll plaza area where the gantry structure will eventually go.  The exception, of course, is the ongoing Upper Level deck reconstruction that requires a permanent lane closure in the off-peak direction (project progressing well and on schedule).

The MTA will continue to provide updates in the coming weeks and months about Cashless Tolling, which allows more efficient and safe traffic flow (no more merging or crossing over to choose a toll payment lane) and is better for the environment, as drivers no longer wait to pay cash or get stuck behind vehicles with E-ZPass issues.

JEK Communications, Inc. has been retained by"Cablevision of New York" to perform excavation of the existing cable television system on 64th Street between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue.  The work will begin no more than 3 days from this notification.  Work will be performed 1-7 days and all work completed will be restored to its original state prior to work start.

Important News from the MTA - NYC Transit - N Line Construction

As you know, in January of this year NYCTransit started a 48 month construction project to renew nine stations along the Sea Beach N Line in Brooklyn from 8th Avenue to 86th Street. Over the past year we have been in the preliminary construction phase prepping for the major work that will start next month, January 2016.

Phase I of the project will see major construction work on the Manhattan-bound station platforms, platform walls, stairs, etc. In order to safely and efficiently perform this work track access is necessary. Starting Monday, January 18, 2016, Manhattan-bound platforms at all nine (9) stations will be out of service for 14 months. There will be temporary platforms at the 8th Avenue and Bay Parkway stations. To access the Fort Hamilton Parkway, New Utrecht Ave, 18th Ave, 2nd Ave, Kings Highway, Avenue U and 86th Street stations while platforms are under constructions, customers will need to back-ride using the temporary platforms at 8th Avenue and Bay Parkway or travel to Stillwell Terminal.

Customer Service Notices and take-ones will be going out into stations and trains, announcements on trains and in Stations, as well as social media outlets in the weeks before the January 18 start date. (Posted: January 07, 2016)
