20-Mile Backup On Southbound I-95 Eases Considerably
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A major traffic jam on the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 caused a backup of up to three hours before clearing up just after 7 p.m.
As of 7:30 p.m., delays were only 2 miles, back to Rosedale Avenue.
At its height, the backup stretched 20 miles, from Rye in Westchester County all the way to the George Washington Bridge.
The westbound Cross Bronx Expressway was also jammed from the Bruckner interchange all the way to the George Washington Bridge, CBS 2’s Joe Biermann reported.
Midday construction on the outbound lanes of the GWB are to blame for Friday night’s massive delays.
Emergency construction caused major delays leading up to the George Washington Bridge in both directions Wednesday night.
