Coming April 23: No More Lane-Guessing Games

I did it last month and will probably do it again. Maybe you’ve done it: jockeying for the correct lane you after you cross the main span en route to the toll plaza.

Now drivers can pass through the first two lanes - on the far left - at 35 miles per hour.

There are a few reminders to tell you which lanes accept cash and E-ZPass® and which are E-ZPass® only lanes. Maybe you changed your mind about how to pay or saw another lane moving faster than yours. Maybe you were in the wrong payment lane as you got to the toll plaza.

No more human smile while paying cash or a smiley face when your E-ZPass® tag registers at the Tarrytown toll plaza. Look for new lane configurations there once cashless tolling starts on April 23. You’ll have no decision about which lane to take; your only choice — if you don’t have E-ZPass® — will be how to pay the bill.

I’d like to know what you think.
