Kew Gardens Interchange Infrastructure & Operational Improvement Project – Grand Central Parkway Design-Build Project.
Phase III, currently underway, is replacing the existing deteriorated two-lane Van Wyck Expressway southbound viaduct over the Grand Central Parkway with a continuous three-lane viaduct, and constructing new exits to the westbound Union Turnpike and the Jackie Robinson Parkway. The three lanes from the Van Wyck Expressway will also merge with two lanes from the Grand Central Parkway over a longer distance. Kew Gardens Interchange is located halfway between LaGuardia Airport and JFK International Airport. The Grand Central Parkway connects to this interchange
