Merrill Lynch To Find New TZB Funding

Merrill Lynch will lead a team of outside consultants to find financing to build a new Tappan Zee Bridge. The one year $2.2 million contract was award by the NYS Department of Transportation.

Regional transportation officials are looking at creative financing options to pay for the $16 billion multi-use (car, rapid bus trainsit, light rail, and pedestrian/bike access) project. Their report is due on December 31.

Merrill joins Winston & Strawn LLP and Loop Capital to assist in exploring funding scenarios for the bridge.  Although the Obama administration stimulus bill emphasizes infrastructure projects like the new TZB, a  thorough environmental review is till pending making the new bridge ineligible as a “shovel ready” project.
