What are the Busiest County Roads in Ulster County?

When it comes to traffic safety in Ulster County, where you drive has an immense impact. We have many kinds of roads that are driven on every day by cars, trucks and motorcycles, including:

  • Interstate Highways like I-87 or I-84 managed by the Federal Highways Administration
  • State Routes like NY-28, NY-32 or NY-299 managed by the NYSDOT
  • County Routes like the ones listed below, managed by the county
  • Town and Village Roads like Broadway in Kingston or Tinker Street in Woodstock
  • Bridges like the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge or Rondout Creek Bridge managed by the NYS Bridge Authority

In a given commute, Ulster County drivers may drive through a dozen different traffic jurisdictions, with a combination of federal, state, county, town/city/village roads, and bridges. If you or a loved one gets into an accident or car crash, each jurisdiction has its own standards and norms for providing a reasonably safe environment.

According to previous research published on our blog, the majority of fatal car crashes happen on State Routes like NY-28 and NY-9W, due to the combination of their proximity to many people’s homes and commutes, higher speed limits, and a tendency for drivers to be in “auto-pilot” mode near home.

While Ulster County’s roads don’t have nearly as many fatal car crashes, there are still many injury car crashes that can occur due to the high number of daily vehicles. In this blog post, we’re going to summarize data from the New York State Department of Transportation about the number of average daily vehicles on Ulster County’s roads.
