Lower Hudson Transit Link starts this Month

Above is the westbound lane (from left to right): median shoulder, next two lanes for passenger cars only, next two lanes are travel lanes (not limited to passenger vehicles), then a bus lane/emergency access lane, then a shoulder and finally the path and overlooks. Renderings are from the NYS Department of Transportation.

Red/green ramp meter signals will be installed from Exit 14A in Rockland County to Exit 4 in Westchester County and will regulate vehicular flow entering the highway to manage roadway congestion. Three will be intalled in Westchester by the end of October 2018; the others will be installed in 2019 and 2020.

A dedicated lane on each span of the new bridge can save up to five minutes on typical weekday commutes and additional time travel when there are major traffic incidents. The state police also enforce proper lane use. Look for the lane on the eastbound span at the end of this month and on the westbound span when the new path is finished in 2019.

New York State Police will enforce traffic rules at the ramp meters; drivers who fail to stop at a red ramp meter light can be fined the equivalent of a regular traffic signal violation.

I’d like to know what you think.
