Just before the northern terminus, there is an entrance to the Long Island Expressway (I-495) west. Woodhaven Boulevard ends at Queens Boulevard (NY 25). An overpass carries Woodhaven Boulevard over the main road of Queens Boulevard, so it only intersects the service roads. Turn right at the first traffic light to go east on Queens Boulevard and for an entrance to the expressway east. Turn left at the second traffic light to go west on Queens Boulevard. The Queens Center Mall is straight ahead.
