Starting September 5, there will be no 28 Avenue overpass access or access to the Marina north to Fort Totten (from Northern Boulevard) due to renovation work on Joe Michaels Mile. Patrons can access the Bayside Marina and the 28 Avenue overpass from Totten Avenue. This first phase will take several months. Once the first phase is complete, the entire path from Northern Boulevard to the 28 Avenue overpass will be completely closed to the public. The north section of Joe Michaels Mile between the 28 Avenue Overpass and Fort Totten will be open throughout. Updates will be posted here when available. We apologize for any inconvenience. Total project duration is one year.
