There is a 12 month restoration program on the George Washington Bridge, which will affect traffic.

George Washington Bridge Rehabilitation Program

First opened in 1931, the George Washington Bridge (GWB) remains structurally sound and vital today due to the Port Authority’s commitment to ongoing maintenance and investment to address the wear-and-tear and renewal of this 85-year-old crossing. In 2015 alone, more than 50.5 million eastbound automobiles, buses, and trucks traveled across the bridge, making it the busiest bridge in the world.

The "Restoring the George" program comprises a $1.9 billion investment in 11 state of good repair projects that will maintain the structural health of the facility over the next decade for the millions of customers who use it every year.
