A new and improved ramp is now open on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, the MTA said Wednesday.

Drivers traveling from Manhattan to Queens on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge now have a smoother ride, the MTA said Wednesday.

Improvements to the 54,000 square foot ramp wrapped up a month ahead of schedule on Aug. 29.

The project cost $50.7 million, and replaced the original ramp built in 1967. The new ramp has a smoother surface, safety shoulders and better drainage, the MTA said Wednesday.

 

“Motorists will now be able to drive on a brand new ramp that will last for many decades to come, and it was built with as little disruption to daily traffic as possible,” MTA Bridges and Tunnels Assistant Facility Engineer Adam Rose said in a release.
