HIGHLAND – For the first time in six months, traffic is up on the five Hudson River crossings operated by the New York State Bridge Authority.

Over 91,000 more vehicles crossed the river in April for an increase slightly under two percent.

A total of 4.9 million vehicles traveled over the spans this past April, compared to a little more than 4.8 million during the same month last year.

Bridge Authority Executive Director Joseph Ruggiero said they need that trend to continue.
