In an effort to give travelers more direct access to the terminals at LaGuardia Airport, there will be changes made to the current flow of traffic on the Grand Central Parkway starting tomorrow.

As of Saturday, Aug. 19, vehicles will no longer be able to turn left at Exit 7 and the westbound Grand Central Parkway to access Terminal B and 94th Street. Drivers going to Delta’s Terminals C and D will turn right at Exit 7, as they currently do, to loop onto the internal airport roadway network leading to those terminals.

Those who are traveling to Terminal B will now have access through Exit 6 on the westbound Grand Central Parkway. The new Exit 6 will lead customers from the Grand Central Parkway onto the Service Road, where they can take LaGuardia Road to Terminal B’s arrivals or departures levels, while local traffic can use the Service Road to gain access to 94th Street.

Exit 5, which connects travelers to Terminal A, long-term parking, with the car rental shuttles pickup area in front of Terminal A, will not be affected.

The new traffic plan will allow drivers to have better access to Terminal B. Travelers are advised to plan ahead and allow for extra travel time.
