HIGHLAND – Traffic and revenue on all five of the bridges operated by the New York State Bridge Authority were up in September of the year. The two percent increase can be attributed to, perhaps among other factors, the lower price of gas.
The Bear Mountain Bridge experienced the greatest increases with a 7.9 percent increase in revenue and 7.3 percent increase in traffic.
The Mid-Hudson Bridge can in second with 4.4 percent more traffic in
September while revenue rose over 3.6 percent.
Revenue was up on the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge by 2.1 percent while traffic rose by just under 1.6 percent.
The Rip Van Winkle Bridge saw revenue increase by more than 1.8 percent and traffic rise by close to 1.8 percent.
The Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, with by far the most traffic of all the bridges, saw
less than nine-tenths of one percent growth in traffic and revenue.
