The pair of peregrine falcons that live in a man-made nest box on the existing Tappan Zee Bridge became proud parents once again with the hatching of a nestling on April 10.
The New NY Bridge project team is inviting members of the public to help name the new falcon chick. 
A week-long naming contest is now underway on the project's Falcon Cam webpage. Rockland and Westchester students came up with the names.

On Sunday April 24, travelers on the Tappan Zee Bridge said goodbye to the lines at the Tarrytown toll plaza thanks to cashless tolling. The state-of-the-art technology created a new traffic pattern in the area, eliminating the need for toll booths and speeding commutes across the river.
Rows of towering piers stand in procession across the Hudson River as the New NY Bridge project steadily moves ahead.       

Years of hard work and careful planning on the New NY Bridge project are paying off as Tappan Zee Constructors recorded several construction milestones.
Workers on the New NY Bridge project are making swift progress installing steel girders thanks, in part, to recent good weather.        
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cashless Tolling?    
The new cashless tolling system allows motorists to pay their toll while maintaining highway speeds on the Tappan Zee Bridge. The system collects tolls via E-ZPass and 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 overhead equipment. A bill is then automatically sent to the registered owner by U.S. Mail.
