Starting Tuesday, January 15th the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge’s Manhattan-to-Randall’s Island entrance ramp will be temporarily closed and vehicles bound for Randall’s Island (RI) from Manhattan will be detoured a short distance further in the Queens-bound direction to the alternate RI entrance ramp (Exit 46A-Randall’s Island-Icahn Stadium).
In addition, motorists should be aware there will be a traffic pattern shift toward the right for Bronx- and Queens-bound traffic, but no loss in traffic lane capacity.
The pattern shift and temporary ramp closure are necessary for rehabilitation of the roadway deck at the RI interchange.
Motorists and commuters coming from Manhattan to Randall’s Island should allow for additional travel time. Finally, please see the NYC Transit service notice below for the M35 bus route.
