In January 2023, the New York State Thruway Authority has started a three-year project to replace the North Avenue bridge, which is located above a section of the I-95 New England Thruway. Improvements will include a wider overpass structure, a dedicated left turn lane on North Avenue onto Garden Street, and more efficient traffic flow in the area.
March 8, 2023: Stage 1 begins
To allow for the outer portions of the existing bridge to removed and replaced (see graphic below), the new traffic pattern will allow cars, buses, and other vehicles with three axles or less to use two lanes in the center of the bridge- one in each direction.
