New Traffic Pattern Goes Into Effect Sat., April 10th at Brooklyn–bound Verrazano–Narrows Bridge Toll Plaza To Get Ready For Toll Booth Removal Work

A new traffic pattern will be in effect for several months at the Brooklyn–bound Verrazano–Narrows toll plaza beginning Saturday, April 10th as preparation work begins for an upcoming construction project to remove the first two unused toll booths at the far right of the plaza.

Traffic coming on to the plaza from Father Capodanno, Lily Pond and Narrows Road South will be shifted around the construction zone.  Staten Island Expressway traffic will continue through the plaza as normal.

All nine lanes of traffic from the Staten Island Expressway, Narrows Road South and Father Capodanno and Lily Pond Brooklyn–bound on ramps will be maintained during peak driving times during the work. Some off–peak toll lane closures may be scheduled.

Portable signs will be in place at Father Capodanno, and Lily Pond Brooklyn–bound ramps to alert motorists to the new traffic pattern.

MTA Bridges and Tunnels' facilities, which connect the five boroughs of New York City, are the Robert. F. Kennedy, Throgs Neck, Bronx–Whitestone, Henry Hudson, Verrazano–Narrows, Cross Bay Veterans Memorial and Marine Parkway–Gil Hodges Bridges, and the Queens Midtown and Brooklyn–Battery Tunnels.
