Please notice the traffic control measures during the Dragon Boat Festival Holiday, choose a better time to departure.
Based on the traffic characteristics of the Dragon Boat Festival Holiday in recent years, Freeway Bureau considered that tourism is major trip purpose. The traffic volume is up to 1.3~1.4 times of average annual weekday traffic. Southbound traffic is concentrated on June 3rd to 4th morning hours, and northbound traffic is concentrated on June 4th 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 the peak time and the suggested time is listed as follows:
1. From June 3rd to 4th, please departure southbound before 6:00 am or after 12:00 noon.
2. From June 4th to 5th, people living in the southern region please departure northbound before 9:00 am, and people living in the central region please departure northbound before 12:00 noon.
To ease the massive traffic demand during the Dragon Boat Festival Holiday, Freeway Bureau will implement entrance ramp closure, and northbound high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) exclusive use (see Figure.1). Please make sure you have known relevant freeway traffic control measures before you drive.
Freeway Bureau wishes everyone a happy Dragon Boat Festival Holiday.
