TARRYTOWN, N.Y. CBSNewYork) – The “old” Tappan Zee Bridge will be out of commission in 2016. That is one piece of new information that came out in a meeting Monday night in Tarrytown.
There’s no timetable for an official groundbreaking, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s adviser on the project, Brian Conybeare, said the span’s design build team would like to have staging areas and other assets in the area starting in March.
Conybeare said the plan is for test pile-driving in June and for dredging to commence in August.
