NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Final approval came Friday for construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, the final green light came from New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, after they reviewed the fine print in the $3.14 billion contract for the project.
“We looked at the contractor. We looked at the vendor. We looked at the procurement process; made sure it was handled in the appropriate way,” DiNapoli said.
