FOUNDATION WORK CONTINUES ON THE NEW NY BRIDGE
Construction of the New NY Bridge continues the week of June 2 with pile driving between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. A second shift of workers will also continue pile welding operations associated with permanent foundations.
Marine crews are working from the shorelines of Rockland and Westchester counties, moving outward to place permanent foundation piles. Work on the foundations for the main span will continue as well. To learn more about the main span foundation and tower construction see the new "Bridge Rising" animation on NewNYBridge.com
Work will also continue on the Rockland work trestles near the county shorelines, including pile driving to install the temporary foundations needed to support the platforms. The trestle will support cranes for the construction of the western-most sections of the new bridge.

Mariners should be aware that TZC will continue installing permanent piles in the vicinity of the side channels under the existing bridge, weather permitting. Additional temporary navigational lights have been installed to further define the 600-foot navigation channel under the main span. Both temporary and permanent piles are illuminated at night. An interactive map showing vessel locations on the Hudson River is now available on the project website, NewNYBridge.com, for recreational and commercial boaters to get updated information on this very active construction zone. The GPS tracking map is for informational purposes and not intended for navigation.
