Canal Street is a major east/west street in Downtown Manhattan. It extends from West Street (NY 9A) to the Manhattan Bridge, passing through Chinatown. There is access to the Holland Tunnel (I-78) near the western end. Canal Street is a four- to six-lane undivided road with traffic lights.
There is also a short two-lane section of Canal Street extending from East Broadway to the Manhattan Bridge. Motorists travelling east on Canal Street cannot access this section directly and instead are forced onto the Manhattan Bridge if they do not turn off before it.
