The new bridge moved another giant step forward this month as Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) installed the fourth and final concrete crossbeam on the main span. In addition to supporting the future road deck, the massive precast beams will reinforce the outward-angled towers as they grow to their ultimate 419-foot height.

Rockland and Westchester residents voiced their opinions at a pair of public meetings this March as the New NY Bridge team presented detailed information regarding the proposed alternatives for the Shared-Use Path (SUP) parking facilities and connections in the villages of South Nyack and Tarrytown.
Living up to its safety motto, "Take Zero Chances," Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) recently held safety meetings with every member of its New NY Bridge project crew.        

Since the start of construction of the New NY Bridge in 2013, the project's outreach team has partnered with local schools to engage nearly 40,000 students. The team's presentations highlight the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics-collectively known as the STEM fields-to the design and construction of the twin-span bridge.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cashless Tolling, and when will it take effect on the Tappan Zee Bridge?    
Beginning on April 23, 2016, the new cashless tolling system will allow motorists to pay their toll while maintaining highway speeds on the Tappan Zee Bridge. The system will collect tolls via E-ZPass or Tolls by Mail, detecting classes of vehicles and applying the correct charge.
If you have E-ZPass, your toll is collected using the same process that you are already familiar with. If you don't have E-ZPass, cameras photograph your vehicle's license plate as it passes under the overheard equipment. A bill is then automatically sent to the registered owner by U.S. Mail.
