The New York City Department of Transportation issued select “Gridlock Alert Days” today. It’s difficult to imagine New York City traffic when it is not gridlocked by most standards; however, the holidays are a special time in New York City and a favorite time of year for charter and tour groups. Drivers can expect that travel through Midtown will take twice as long as a typical day of the week; so plan accordingly.

Select days in November and December are designated Gridlock Alert Days, as traffic volumes increase with holiday shopping and travel, as well as special event street closures. Drivers can expect that travel through Midtown will take twice as long as a typical day of the week; so plan accordingly.
