Two Exits at Kew Gardens Interchange to Undergo Nighttime Closures Through End of April

State DOT

April 11, 2019 By Alexa Beyer

Two exits on the Kew Gardens Interchange will be closed during nights as part of an ongoing project to reconstruct the busy junction.

The ramp from southbound Van Wyck Expressway (Exit 7) to westbound Jackie Robinson Parkway and the entrance ramp from westbound Union Turnpike to westbound Grand Central Parkway will close starting the night of April 12.

The exits will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Monday through Thursday nights, and 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The intermittent closures are expected to extend through the end of April.

The closures will allow workers to remove the old southbound Van Wyck Expressway elevated viaduct. These repairs are part of Phase III of an ongoing construction project designed to improve traffic flow at the bustling junction where the Van Wyck Expressway, the Grand Central Parkway, the Jackie Robinson Parkway and the Union Turnpike converge.

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) advises motorists to follow the signed detours during the repair period. For real-time travel information, motorists should check New York State’s official traffic and travel information source, 511NY.

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
