The $14 toll that the Cuomo administration has proposed for a new Tappan Zee Bridge is too high, the governor said. When it was announced by Cuomo staffers last week, it caused an outcry in the New York City suburbs that rely on the span.
The steady pounding has echoed up and down the river this month as pile drivers have tested the riverbed for the new Tappan Zee Bridge being built alongside the old span.
Officials are hoping a new bidding protocol will help them keep a better handle on cost and construction of the new bridge.
The 44-year-old man involved survived, but the 29-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries after initially surviving the fall, which occurred around 9 a.m.
