Mario Cuomo Bridge

TZB Task Force To Reduce The Toll of the Toll

by Paul Feiner, Greenburgh Town Supervisor

Great news. Governor Andrew Cuomo has sent a letter to the Thruway Authority asking the NY State Thruway Authority to find ways to reduce the Tappan Zee bridge tolls. The Governor is calling for a task force made up of Thruway, state, federal and local officials to find ways to reduce the projected $14 tolls.

I had previously announced plans to hold a rally/meeting at Greenburgh Town Hall this Wednesday, August 15th at 7 PM to oppose the toll hikes. We also are pushing to have bridge construction costs to be paid for state-wide, not just by Tappan Zee bridge motorists. We were expecting a few hundred people to attend the meeting/rally.

In light of the Governor’s responsiveness to the concerns of residents who object to the toll hike ‘€“ there is no need to have the meeting on August 15th. The meeting is cancelled. If you know anyone who was planning to attend please advise them of the cancellation of the meeting’€”in light of the Governor’s announcement.

I want to express my appreciation to Governor Cuomo for listening to the community. It’s great to have a Governor in office who is trying hard to be responsive to concerns of the electorate. $14 tolls would have had a very negative impact on small and large businesses in Westchester and Rockland. Hopefully, the Tappan Zee bridge,when it is built, will not be only for the rich.
