Environmental Stewardship

The Lower Hudson Valley is a home to a rich and diverse natural environment. The plants, trees, fish, and animals in the vicinity of the New NY Bridge project have played a central role in the region’s history and are cherished by the local residents.

In construction as well as design, the New NY Bridge team has worked diligently to reduce the environmental impacts associated with the project. Examples include the use of equipment requiring less dredging, smaller pilings, extensive use of clean fuel technology and a range of measures to minimize construction noise and protect wildlife.
