Press Release Number: 15-2015

Following Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order to put in place a travel ban on all New York State and local roads in 13 counties, the Port Authority, with Governor Christie's concurrence, will close all trans-Hudson crossings effective at 11 p.m. tonight. This includes the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, Bayonne Bridge, Goethals Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing. On closed roads, only authorized emergency vehicles will be permitted.

Service on the PATH rail system will also be suspended at 11 p.m., until further notice. PATH is scheduled to operate regular service through this evening’s rush hour. Beginning at approximately 9 p.m., PATH is scheduled to run a weekend schedule until 11 p.m.

These closures are to ensure safety before the height of the storm. The Port Authority will look to resume service when conditions permit.
