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.
