NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law



§ 385. Dimensions and weights of vehicles.
1. (a) (i) The width of a vehicle, inclusive of load, shall be not more than ninety-six inches plus safety devices, except that the maximum width of a vehicle, inclusive of load, shall be one hundred two inches, plus safety devices, on any qualifying or access highway. Except in a city not wholly included within one county, the maximum width of a vehicle, inclusive of load shall not be more than one hundred two inches plus safety devices on any other highway with traffic lanes designed to be a width of ten feet or more.


Read again. 8 1/2 foot trucks are allowed only on qualified highways. In NYC, 8 1/2 foot trucks are allowed only on roads with lanes that are 10 feet wide or more. However, this discussion started with reducing the width of Queens Blv lanes to 9 feet to get vehicles to obey speed limit.
