The NY State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) has established a temporary weight restriction on the Route 59 bridge over Pascack Road (County Route 35). This restriction is due to a recent bridge inspection, and the restriction has changed the types of vehicles that can safely cross the bridge. The TOR buses are among the larger and heavier vehicles that must follow the detour until further notice.

NYS DOT Announces New Ramp Meters onto Thruway in Rockland County

The NYS Department of Transportation has announced that five new eastbound ramp meters are scheduled to begin operating in Rockland County.  The ramp meters are located along I-87/I-287 eastbound on-ramps at the following interchanges:
 
  • 14A (from the Garden State Parkway)
  • 14 (from Rt. 59)
  • 13S (from the Palisades Parkway)
  • 13N (from the Palisades Parkway)
  • 12 (from Rt. 303 and the Palisades Center Mall)

These  ramp meters join three westbound ramp meters already operating in Westchester County.  Further information on the NYS DOT ramp metering project is available from the Lower Hudson Transit Link website at https://www.dot.ny.gov/lhtl, and in the LHTL Fall 2019 Newsletter and the LHTL Ramp Meters Bus Lanes Factsheet.

Route 59 Sidewalk Construction - TOR Bus Service Impacts

TOR bus service along Route 59 may be periodically impacted by a State DOT construction project, installing new sidewalks and crosswalks along Route 59 between Monsey and Spring Valley.  When sidewalk access is blocked by construction, pedestrian traffic will be detoured to temporary pedestrian safe paths marked with flashing warning lights.  These paths will include temporary pedestrian crossings and temporary pedestrian ramps in some locations. 

Temporary bus stop signs will be posted if bus shelters are blocked during construction.  Customers are urged to use caution, follow the posted pedestrian paths and the direction of flaggers, and leave extra time to navigate to and from bus stops during the construction.

The project will also include periodic vehicular traffic detours which may delay the bus routes.   

Metro-North Continues to Cross-honor Pascack Valley Line Tickets

All Pascack Valley line rail tickets continue to be cross-honored on Metro-North's Hudson and Harlem lines in Westchester.  

The cross-honoring will continue until NJ TRANSIT restores the three trains that have been temporarily discontinued while the agency installs Positive Train Control equipment on its rail fleet.

The three trains that have been temporarily discontinued on the Pascack Valley Line include:

Inbound Train #1618 – the 7:59 am Metro-North express from Spring Valley.  As an alternative, customers may wish to take:

  • The 7:37 local from Spring Valley, arriving Hoboken at 8:50 AM and New York-Penn at 9:06 AM, the same time as the cancelled 7:59 AM train. 
  • The 8:08 AM local from Spring Valley will depart five minutes earlier, at 8:03 AM, and will not stop at four stations in New Jersey, reducing the overall travel time on this train. It will arrive Hoboken at 9:09 AM and New York-Penn at 9:22 AM.

Outbound Train #1639– the 7:20 pm Metro-North express from Hoboken (7:08 from NY Penn).  As an alternative, customers may wish to take:

  • The 6:48 PM local from Hoboken (6:41 PM from New York-Penn Station) arriving Spring Valley at 8:03 PM.
  • The 7:29 PM local (7:20 PM from New York-Penn Station), arriving Spring Valley at 8:40 PM.

Outbound Train #9653– operates only on Friday afternoons and holidays at 2:58 pm from Hoboken (2:51 from NY Penn).
