That’s what we did- used it to enter NYC from NJ. There are many multiple lanes and highways all converging and separating during the many mike long approach to this massive structure. Both Waze and posted electronic signs advise whether the lower or upper deck...More

I used the GW Bridge in the early afternoon to return home from morning business in Jersey. Still plenty of traffic during an off peak hour heading back to Long Island.

I had to take a quick trip to New Jersey. Always a great view crossing the GWB. At 1:30pm, there was plenty of traffic. Better opportunity to take in the sights.

Being from out of state I thought going across the bridge around 6pm on a Saturday night would be ok, I was wrong. We sat in bumper to bumper traffic for well over an hour trying to get on. It's an iconic bridge, yes, but...More
