There have been no big public announcements on the Tappan Zee Bridge replacement project since it got the final green light from federal official last month, but developments are quietly taking shape behind the scenes.
The state’s selection committee is currently reviewing some 750,000 pages in proposals from three teams competing to design and build a new 3-mile crossing. Meanwhile, state officials have been meeting with bridge neighbors, as I reported in a story today on the Tarrytown neighborhood of Irving. Residents there have expressed concern about traffic, noise, and security during construction that’s expected to last at least 5 years.
Project leaders are also continuing to promote Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan with a traveling presentation in communities across Westchester and Rockland. This week’s stops:
Monday, October 22, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Sleepy Hollow Community Meeting
James Galgano Building
55 Elm Street, Sleepy Hollow
Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 6:30 pm
Dobbs Ferry Community Meeting
112 Main Street, Dobbs Ferry
State officials have said they hope to award a contract to a winning design-build team by the end of the year.
