Friday Morning Commute Miserable After Accident Shuts Part Of George Washington Bridge

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Commuters trying to make their way into Manhattan from New Jersey this morning confronted a terrible backup at the George Washington Bridge following a tractor trailer accident.

The accident shut the upper level on the Manhattan-bound side of the bridge, and part of the lower level as well.

Delays were said to be up to be 90 minutes. Commuters were urged to seek alternative routes.

Check traffic & transit

The accident occurred shortly before 6 a.m.

The bridge reopened at around 8 a.m., but lingering delays continued to make the commute difficult.

    What does a traffic accident have to do with Republicans? Maybe you need to go shoot dope with your OWS buddies.

    And you wonder why you got slaughtered in the midterm elections?

  • GOP killing Amerikka

    If the USA was more committed to public transit this would be much less of a problem!!!

    Ah the GOP don’t care since they are all tooled around in chauffered limos & town cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!
