State DOT to Open New Exit 15 Ramp on Grand Central Parkway


Nov. 15, 2019 By Allie Griffin

Drivers on Grand Central Parkway will have a new exit ramp to take to Union Turnpike West/ Queens Boulevard West beginning early Saturday morning, state officials said.

The new Exit 15 ramp will be placed about 500 feet before the existing temporary ramp beginning at 3 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16., the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) announced.

The permanent ramp on the westbound side of the parkway is part of the department’s $365 million Kew Gardens Interchange Phase 4 Project.

However, inclement weather could cause the ramp opening to be rescheduled, NYSDOT noted.

For real-time travel information, motorists should check New York State’s official traffic and travel information source, 511NY, before traveling. Call 5-1-1, visit or download the free 511NY mobile app on iTunes or Google Play.  The free service allows users to check road conditions, view traffic cameras and link to air and transit information.
