New York State Thruway

The New York State Thruway is the main highway of New York, connecting New York City, Albany, and Buffalo. The first section, from Rochester to Lowell (NY 26) opened in 1954 and the mainline is nearly 500 miles long. The road also includes the Berkshire Spur to the Massachusetts Turnpike, the Niagara Thruway connecting Buffalo to Niagara Falls via Grand Island, the New England Thruway connecting the Connecticutt Turnpike to the Bruckner Expressway, and the Garden State Parkway Connector. The New York State Canal Corporation, Cross-Westchester Expressway, and Interstate 84 were added to the Thruway system in 1992 when toll collection was extended after the bonds were paid off. Interstate 84 was transferred back to NYSDOT in 2010 as part of a deal to eliminate the Buffalo and Black Rock toll barriers on the Niagara Thruway, and the Canal Corporation was transferred to the New York Power Authority in 2016. County line signs are not posted on the mainline, Berkshire Extension, or the Niagara section.
