Southern Tier Expressway, Quickway, Averell Avenue, Orange Turnpike
Ramp Views
The Quickway begins at the New York Thruway (I-87) in Harriman. There is a toll for motorists coming off the Thruway. Those coming from the north pay a toll depending on how far they have travelled on the Thruway, while those coming from the south are charged a fixed toll. Exit 131 is for Averell Avenue (NY 17) south, US 6 east, and NY 32 north. The Quickway continues straight ahead as NY 17. After a short distance, it will be multiplexed with US 6. This short section currently has no signed designation, but it will become part of I-86 once the Quickway is upgraded to interstate standards. It has a reference route number of 984C.
