You boys want to explain the point of this little pissing match over highway numbers? --Calton | Talk 05:26, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I'm keeping it sorted according to its number. I don't know what Gene's doing. --SPUI (talk) 05:45, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

907W vs. 908A sorting key[edit]

OK, so I added the other reference route (my source is List of New York State Reference Routes), but now I'm wondering what to do about the sorting key. I suppose it doesn't even really matter, because the sorting key isn't visible and the Hutch's order in Category:New York state highways is the same regaurdless of which of the two is chosen. I'm just wondering if there's some way it can be sorted by both. (I don't see any reason why one of the two is better than the other.) Any ideas? --Engleman 05:00, September 2, 2005 (UTC)

I would put 908A, as the 907W does not match the region it is in (Region 10 number, but it is in region 8). Rmsuperstar99 03:42, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Toll Road Status[edit]

The Hutch used to be a Toll Road. The toll booth was located just over the Bronx/Westchester county line and was removed in recent (~10 years or so) time. Maybe someone can look into this? Rob110178 23:18, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

"The reconstruction project was completed on October 31, 1994, when the 25-cent Pelham Manor toll plaza between EXIT 7 (US 1 / Boston Post Road) and EXIT 8 (Sanford Boulevard) was removed." from http://www.nycroads.com/roads/hutchinson/. I am adding this to the article This seems to be correct, as I have a map from 1993 that does show a toll, and a map from 1995 that does not have it. Rmsuperstar99 03:46, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

the Hutch ends under the Whitestone Bridge[edit]

The article says it ends at the Bruckner Interchange, but if you continue south to the Bronx-Whitesone Bridge and take the last exit before the toll, you find yourself on a road signed as "Hutchinson River Parkway" which allows access to Ferry Point Park and loops around under the bridge to get you northbound on I-678 again. 47.20.162.46 (talk) 13:23, 14 August 2015 (UTC)captcrisis
