A long ramp runs from the Grand Central Parkway at exit 9E to the Whitestone Expressway (I-678) north. There are exits for Northern Boulevard (NY 25A) east and the Van Wyck Expressway (I-678) south. There is also access to exit 14 of the Whitestone Expressway, which is for Linden Place. This ramp was built to be part of the Astoria Expressway, a limited-access highway from the RFK Bridge (I-278) to the Whitestone Expressway (I-678), running along the right-of-way of Astoria Boulevard. The Astoria Expressway was never built and probably never will be built.
