NYC Releases Traffic Mitigation Plan to Deal With Holiday Crunch

Posted on December 7, 2005 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NEW YORK CITY — The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) is sharing information on the city’s Holiday Traffic Mitigation Plan. The plan is developed each year to address the unusually heavy vehicle traffic associated with the holiday season, which lasts until the Sunday after New Year's Day. "Thru Traffic Only" express lanes will be established on both Fifth Ave. and Sixth Ave. (Avenue of the Americas) in the vicinity of Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. The center lane of Fifth Ave. and Sixth Ave. will be designated as express lanes for through-traffic only and will be distinguished from regular traffic lanes by the placement of highly visible lane markers.

Vehicles entering the express lane on 5th Ave. at 57th St. will not be permitted to exit until 47th St. Vehicles entering the express lane on Sixth Ave. at 43rd St. cannot exit until 53rd St. Vehicles may enter the express lanes at any cross-town intersection if sufficient room exists. However, these vehicles cannot exit until the end of the express lane. A traffic officer will be assigned to each intersection to help facilitate the plan.
