PIERMONT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities are increasing safety patrols around the Tappan Zee Bridge construction project.
Boater safety is a major concern around the construction zone.
“In the waters around the Tappan Zee Bridge project, recreational boaters face a growing number of more construction vessels and restricted navigation areas,” Rockland County Executive Ed Day told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams.
Day and Sheriff Louis Falco III say local law enforcers will be coordinating their efforts with the Coast Guard.
“The Coast Guard has been up here, they have looked over the situation,” Falco said. “They will be able to mark things out and give the do’s and don’ts to the boaters, which we will enforce.”
