Construction Update: Liberty Street Bridge Realignment

Liberty Street Bridge

As of this morning the Liberty Street Bridge Realignment will be in effect. This change has come after months of coordination between the Port Authority, City Agencies, Battery Park City and Brookfield Properties. The realignment of the bridge will allow the Port Authority to move forward on important infrastructure work for the World Trade Center Site. Pedestrians will access the bridge from West Street between Albany and Cedar Streets, in front of the 90 West residential building. The Port Authority has placed numerous signs throughout the area directng pedestrians to the change and will also place pedestrian managers to help navigate the changes. While you are being redirected you may notice the new vision of West Street is taking place; this is the culmination of the State Department of Transportation work to turn Route 9a into the West Street Promenade.

Below is a map showing the changes in pedestrian access for the Liberty Street Bridge realignment. This information is from the Port Authority.
