The Governor Thomas E. Dewey Thruway, built in the early 1950's, is one of the oldest components of the National Interstate Highway System and is one of the longest toll roads in the nation. The 570-mile superhighway connects New York's principal cities, rural areas, and tourist destinations. The mainline of the Thruway extends from New York City to Buffalo (I-87 and I-90). Other elements of the system include the New England Thruway (I-95), the Cross Westchester Expressway (I-287), the Garden State Parkway Connector, the Berkshire Connector (I-90), the Niagara Thruway (I-190), and the Erie Section (I-90). Troop T is broken down into four distinctive Zones to allow for proper supervision, management, and oversight of operations. The mission of Troop T is to maintain the safety and wellness of millions of motorists who use the highway each year. Traffic enforcement, accident investigation, criminal cases, dignitary escorts, and calls for service of all kinds are all a part of a Troop T member’s day.
