Direct interstate routes and new truck stop available at JFK International

| 10/9/2015

Good news for truck drivers picking up or delivering cargo at JFK International Airport: New York City’s Department of Transportation has given the green light to combination vehicles with 53-foot trailers to use all interstate-highway direct routes to JFK.

The new direct route to JFK’s air cargo facilities provides access across the George Washington Bridge on Interstate 95 from points west and south of New York City and via the New England Thruway on I-95 from points north and east. The route then connects to the Whitestone Bridge and onto the Van Wyck Expressway on Interstate 678 directly into JFK.

Additionally, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has opened New York City’s first truck stop at the airport. Food, fuel and truck parking will be available for all trucks.
