Exit 16 is for the Quickway (US 6/NY 17/Future I-86). There was a toll plaza here prior to the recent conversion to cashless tolling. To access the exit, bear right into what were the cash lanes, where all traffic is now forced to exit. To continue north on the Thruway, bear left into what were the E-ZPass lanes for a cashless tolling gantry.

North of the gantry, the Thruway narrows down to two lanes in each direction.
