With the 2016 recreational boating season kicking off this Memorial Day weekend, the U.S. Coast Guard, the New York State Thruway Authority, Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC and local law enforcement are reminding boaters of the safety measures near the extremely active work site.

The New NY Bridge project is pleased to announce the winner of its 2016 falcon naming contest: Irvwing!
The name was one of 10 the public voted for in a week-long poll. Each of the submissions were provide by local students just after the hatching of a young falcon in the Tappan Zee Bridge's nest box in April.
 
Building on the benefits of cashless tolling, commuters are no longer be required to slow down and maneuver through the former Tarrytown toll plaza as four newly unobstructed lanes are opened to traffic. 
 

More than 50 national and global construction firms joined forces with Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) in an annual, industry-wide education and awareness event: Safety Week.
 

Both the Tappan Zee Bridge and its replacement partially share the same footprint where they approach the shores of the Hudson River, posing a logistical challenge for project engineers. Originally, work on the new bridge's piers in these overlapping areas was planned for late 2017, after the existing bridge's demolition. But thanks to innovative engineering, the project team has developed plans to advance foundation construction in these areas.
