It Takes A Village: Tappan Zee Bridge Fast Track

by Kipp Jarden

The plans to fast track a new Tappan Zee Bridge don’t include any of the previously promised trains or buses to ease congestion. But they do include shoulders and a dedicated lane for emergencies — be they political or otherwise.

Note: No announcement has been made on the price of future TZB II tolls, but in October 2010 a NYS Thruway planner speculated that they could run as high as $15 to bond $2 billion. The plan proposed last month suggests bonding a much higher number.
