Please notice the traffic control measures during the Lunar New Year Holiday, 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 traffic volume is up to 1.6~1.8 times of average annual weekday traffic. Southbound traffic is concentrated on February 1st to 3rd morning hours, and northbound traffic is concentrated on February 3rd to 5th afternoon hours. Therefore, Freeway Bureau recommended that people can take public transportation to replace driving for saving time. If people need to drive on the freeway, please avoid traffic jams timing. Suggestions for better time are as follows:
1. From February 1st to 3rd, please departure southbound after 1 pm.
2. From February 3rd to 5th, please departure northbound before noon.
To ease the massive traffic demand during the Lunar New Year Holiday, Freeway Bureau will implement entrance ramp closure and northbound high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) exclusive use (see Figure.1) on Freeway NO.1, NO.3, and NO.5. Please make sure you have known relevant control measures before you drive.
Freeway Bureau wishes everyone a happy Lunar New Year Holiday.
