The Bumpiest Road To Drive In New York State?
The tolls in New York State along the Thruway/I-90 are expected to rise over the next few years. As we get ready to pay more to travel back and forth, the cost to do so will increase. The reasoning behind the increase is that the Thruway needs repairs and will need even more as the Thruway ages.
Typically, road work runs in the area in the spring, summer and early fall. But there appears to have been a projected that has started as we get ready for the winter to start here in the Buffalo are.
If you ever drive the New York State Thruway on the westbound side between the 190 and the 400, you may have noticed that crews milled off a layer of road surface and left behind a stretch of road that is quite bumpy. If you drive a truck or a truck with a plow, you feel it even more! It has to be the bumpiest section of road in the Western New York area. I can't imagine what happens when a plow is going over it.
Now that the snow has been flying across The Empire State, the New York State Thruway Authority has been warning drivers to not crowd the plow you are behind.
The new toll increases that have gotten all the attention are expected to start going in to action after the start of 2024.
