Please notice the traffic control measures during the 2024 Lunar New Year Holiday and choose a better time to departure

Based on the traffic characteristics of the Lunar New Year Holiday in recent years, Freeway Bureau considered that return hometown and tourism are major trip purposes. The freeway traffic volume is up to 1.6 times of average annual weekday traffic. Southbound traffic is concentrated on February 10th to 12th morning hours, and northbound traffic is concentrated on February 12th to 14th afternoon hours. Therefore, Freeway Bureau recommends that people should take public transportation to replace driving for saving travel time. If people need to drive on the freeway, it’s recommended to departure as follow to avoid rush hours:
1. From February 10th to 12th, please departure southbound before 6:00 a.m. or after 12:00 noon.
2. From February 12th to 14th, people living in the southern region please departure northbound before 9:00 a.m., and that living in the central region departure northbound before 12:00 noon.
To ease the massive traffic demand during the Lunar New Year Holiday, Freeway Bureau will implement entrance ramp closures, and northbound high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) exclusive use (see Figure.1). More detailed traffic control measures can be found on Freeway Bureau website( make sure you have known relevant freeway traffic control measures for the Lunar New Year before you drive.
Freeway Bureau wishes everyone have a happy Lunar New Year Holiday.
