ELIZABETH, NJ - The Goethals Bridge to New Jersey will be closed to all traffic beginning 9:00 p.m. on Friday, May 18, until 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 20. 

The Eastbound to NY will remain open. Officials said the closure is necessary to construct the entry and exit ramps for the new westbound span.

On Sunday night, the westbound span is expected to open in its final configuration, three travel lanes, and a shoulder.

The eastbound span will continue to utilize two travel lanes as the contractor completes punch list items.
