East Coast Roads updates!
« on: May 23, 2020, 09:11:42 PM »

All right, following in the footsteps of several other content producers on this forum, I figured it would probably make sense for me to create on ongoing thread for updates to East Coast Roads so you all can find them in one central place.  With the coronavirus limiting my ability to travel longer distances, I've been focusing on Long Island and other areas within a 50-mile radius or so of my home over the last couple of months.  My most recent batch of updates consists of pictures from April 11.  That day, I took an early-morning drive out to the end of the Long Island Expressway (I-495) in Riverhead to get some good westbound pictures without sun glare.  Later in the day, I went down to Massapequa for a hike and captured some higher-quality images of NY 107 northbound from there to Hicksville on the way home.

You captured a photo of a truck ignoring the "NO TRUCKS/COMMERCIAL VEHICLES" sign on the LIE going WB.

All right, time for a big one!  Here's pictures from a Hudson Valley day trip, my first proper day trip since the coronavirus.  Highlights include Sheridan Boulevard (NY 895) in the Bronx, the Bronx Parkway, the Sprain Parkway, the Bear Mountain Bridge (US 6/US 202), I-684 southbound, US 202 and NY 35 across Westchester County, and a batch of county routes in Rockland County.  Enjoy!
