Bloomberg: HOV Restrictions Probably Won’t Resume on Monday

1:49 PM EDT on November 2, 2012

Some notes from Bloomberg's latest Sandy briefing, which wrapped up minutes ago:

    • HOV restrictions end at 5 p.m. today, and will not resume Monday unless deemed necessary.
    • The Holland Tunnel has been reopened to buses and commercial vehicles.
    • The Staten Island Ferry is now operating and will be back on its regular schedule tomorrow.
    • Bloomberg asked motorists to "cut out unnecessary driving," though gasoline supplies should be replenished somewhat tonight. Demand should taper off next week as transit service comes back online. As it stands, emergency vehicles and buses have priority, Bloomberg said.

The mayor expects Con Ed to restore power to Lower Manhattan over the weekend, which would bring the resumption of subway service on the 4, 5, and F trains, according to MTA chief Joe Lhota.
