The Clear(view) alternative

Today’s work location was in New Rochelle, no more than a mile or two away from yesterday’s.  I left about 5:50, and for the most part didn’t have too much trouble with traffic, the one exception being near Exit 52 on the Expressway where people were rubbernecking a minor crash in the opposite lanes.   Like it’s nothing they’ve ever seen before.  Mindful of yesterday’s long delays in exiting from the Expressway to the Cross Island, I decided to stay on the Expressway a couple of exits further and take the Clearview Expressway to the Throgs Neck Bridge.  This is a much better-designed exit than the abomination at the Cross Island.  Taking it is a calculated risk, however, because I would have to stay on the Expressway a couple more exits, right where traffic starts to get very heavy.

It all worked out okay, with traffic sluggish but moving, and once on the Clearview I had a very easy drive across the bridge and up I-95 to New Rochelle.  The 60-mile trip took me about 75 minutes, definitely not too bad.  As I was able to finish up well before the start of rush hour I made it home in just over an hour.
