The New NY Bridge project's electrical network is coming to life. Electricians and systems specialists with Tappan Zee Constructors have begun testing all the electronic systems across the 3.1-mile westbound crossing, which will open to traffic later this year.
The new twin-span bridge will have eight general traffic lanes-four in each direction. Space will also be provided for disabled vehicles, emergency responders and bus rapid transit. There will also be a shared-use path for bicycles and pedestrians.
