George Washington Bridge Alert

Read the latest news about this issue.

The Port Authority announced it would close the GWB North walkway for three years as of mid-April while construction crews paint the bridge's underside. While the foot traffic diverted to the South Path will be minimal, the agency had considered a walk-your-bike rule for the South path to avert any bike-ped conflicts. Quick action by city cyclists, ebikers and T.A. preserved cyclists' right to pedal across the GWB. The Port Authority, however, is asking that cyclists exercise extra care for pedestrians when riding on the bridge.
