Roosevelt Island Sole Access Road To Undergo Total Repair

The 40-year-old spiral road that provides the only vehicular access to Roosevelt Island via the Roosevelt Island Bridge from Long Island City will soon undergo repairs, causing increased travel times for cars, trucks and buses entering and leaving the island. The $33 million capital improvement program will also cause the relocation of the Farmers Market from Helix Plaza to Good Shepherd Plaza at 541 Main Street beginning February 17. The ramp repairs will include waterproofing, patching of the potholes in the concrete rebar splicing, and railing replacements, all to be completed by Specialty Construction Systems, a structural engineering firm based in Mt. Vernon.
