Holiday Travelers Will Catch a Break on the Roadways
The holidays can be stressful enough but when you add battling traffic in the mix it can be down right miserable. Thankfully officials have decided to give us a break and are suspending various roadwork projects during the holiday travel rush.
This week Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that construction related lane closures will be suspended beginning tomorrow, Wednesday November 23rd at 6am. The suspension will last through the weekend, resuming normal schedules after 6am on Monday, November 28th.
"Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of the year and we are committed to doing everything in our power to ease congestion and inconvenience to drivers during this holiday weekend," Governor Cuomo said in a statement. "By putting Drivers First and reducing lane closures and the traffic and delays that come with them, millions of travelers will be able to get where they need to go quicker and with less aggravation."
During this busy travel time officials would also like to remind motorist of the important "Move Over Law" which requires drivers to slow down and move over when emergency vehicles are stopped on the side of the road. Lets all have a safe and happy holiday season.
Safe travels New York!
