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. Meanwhile, a group of fearful fliers successfully completed an anxiety-management program at the airport, called Freedom to Fly.
- The public will get to see details on the proposals for the Tappan Zee Bridge replacement, 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, but they’re facing the highest prices ever for this time of year.
- Rockland Assemblyman, Ken Zebrowski, wants the Tappan Zee Bridge 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. Meanwhile, state Sen. David Carlucci 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 on the road with the holiday season in full swing. They’ve kicked patrols and sobriety checkpoints into high gear.
