NYACK -

The new Mario M. Cuomo Bridge carried countless travelers on Friday who were setting off for Labor Day weekend.

The roadways were busy in the evening, but traffic was steady going over both the old and new spans of the Tappan Zee Bridge.

One motorist, who News 12 caught up with at a gas station off the highway, said they regretted using the busy span.

Anyone hitting the roads this weekend is urged to allow for extra travel time.
