Northway Intersection with Rt 20/Western Ave

Albany, New YorkDec 16, 20191 Comments

Heading south on I-87 after the exit for I-90 and the NYS Thruway, the highway continues straight towards Route 20/Western Ave and Crossgates Mall. There is a reduced speed zone that is clearly marked by signs; however, they still manage to catch many speeding drivers. The highway speed limit reduces from 55 MPH to 45 MPH just before the exit ramp for Crossgates Mall. One or two NYS Troopers will sit just after the underpass on a dirt embankment on the left. This trap is particularly active during holidays when the mall might be crowded and during weekend evenings/nights.

Also note: Troopers sometimes check the speeds of cars entering I-87 Northbound from Western Ave (Rt 20 Eastbound entrance). Be sure that when you round the curve on the ramp, you don’t speed up to quickly as the trooper is well hidden until it’s too late.

If you're simply following traffic, don't be caught as the last in line!
