Notify NYC, New York City’s dedicated emergency public communications program, released the following statement at 10:14 a.m., Tuesday, February 21.
“Due to a vehicle collision, expect extensive northbound traffic delays on the Henry Hudson Parkway at 96th Street in Manhattan. Consider alternate routes and allow for additional travel time.”
The NYPD does not yet have details on the collision. We will update if and when they do.
at any hour of the day, Year after year many cars are driving & speeding at 70 to 80 MPH on the Henry Hudson parkway.
And never any police cars or speed cameras?
looks like the crash caused by SUV which was abandoned and two guys took off running north.
Is it my imagination or are the lanes on the Henry Hudson narrower than standard highway lanes?
The Westside Highway is actually the Henry Hudson PARKWAY. This is the difference. Parkway design and expressway design are different. Parkways have narrower lanes and do not need to have shoulders. This is why trucks and commercial vehicles are not allowed on parkways. Parkway lanes, iirc, are 10 feet wide while expressway lanes are 13.
That’s not the case on the Arthur Burghardt Expressway
Yes. But it’s the same on the Merritt Parkway. “Standard” American highway lanes are comically wide.
Absolutely, comically wide. I can’t tell you how many times I and my co-passengers have had a good guffaw at the width of standard American highway lanes!
Well, look at how wide chairs have to be in America these days … /s (:
