Rip Van Winkle Bridge traffic increased in 2015

Jul 30, 2015 12:03 am
The Mid-Hudson News Network reports in The Daily Freeman that traffic and revenue were up on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, and four other Hudson River bridges for the first half of 2015, over the previous year. The Catskill-to-Greenport bridge traffic was up four percent, the largest increase among the bridges. “We are finally noticing a bit of an uptick in commercial vehicle traffic, so I don’t think that is anything but good news for the Hudson Valley,” Bridge Authority Chief of Staff John Bellucci said. Total traffic on all five bridges run by the New York Bridge Authority rose just under 2 percent from the first half of 2014, while revenue grew by 1.7 percent on the Rip Van Winkle, Kingston-Rhinecliff, Mid-Hudson, Newburgh-Beacon and Bear Mountain bridges.
