tower of George Washington BridgeTravel Advisory from the New York Department of Transportation (Release Date: July 06, 2012):

Alexander Hamilton Bridge Construction On Interstate 95 Expected To Cause Heavy Delays For Travelers From New Jersey Beginning Friday Night, July 13, Bronx County; New Construction Stage In Effect Until October; Motorists Advised To Consider Alternate Routes Beginning Friday night, July 13, a new construction stage in the ongoing rehabilitation of the Alexander Hamilton Bridge over the Harlem River on Interstate 95 has the potential to significantly increase travel times for motorists traveling from New Jersey into New York City across the George Washington Bridge. Travelers bound for the Cross Bronx Expressway (I-95) or the Major Deegan Expressway (I-87) are advised to consider alternate routes where possible. The new traffic pattern will be in place until October 2012.

This change is necessary in order to repair the underlying steel in the Bronx-bound direction of the bridge and to place a new concrete deck that will last for decades.
