[1]While you were busy planning Thanksgiving feasts last week, you may have missed your daily dose of transportation stories.

We’ve got you covered with a list of highlights:


  • Frequent fliers at Westchester County Airport will now have a chance to breeze through security, thanks to the arrival of a new registered-traveler program called CLEAR. [2]¬† Meanwhile, a group of fearful fliers successfully completed an anxiety-management program at the airport, called Freedom to Fly. [3]

  • The public will get to see details on the proposals for the Tappan Zee Bridge replacement [4], but it’s unclear when they will be unveiled¬†—or what exactly can be released before a contract is awarded.

  • Travelers were grateful to see gas lines disappear in time for Thanksgiving [5], but they’re facing the highest prices ever for this time of year.

  • Rockland Assemblyman, Ken Zebrowski, wants the Tappan Zee Bridge [6] to have all-electronic tolling during rush hours to ease congestion.

  • In its latest effort to keep trucks off area parkways, the state has painted warnings on the pavement of the Hutchinson River and Saw Mill Parkways. [7]¬† Meanwhile, state Sen. David Carlucci [8] is pushing for gas stations to have backup generators in case we are faced with another Superstorm Sandy.

  • Police are expecting to see more drunken drivers [9] on the road with the holiday season in full swing. They’ve kicked patrols and sobriety checkpoints into high gear.
