Bikers, Beware: TZB Bridge Work Ahead

That’s because crews working on the new Tappan Zee Bridge are beginning utility work that will reduce sections of Piermont Ave/River Road to one lane during daytime hours. After hours there’s still reason to take it slow: temporary steel coverings on the roadway will create uneven driving surfaces that might mean flats for cars and more serious bumps for bicyclists.

Here’s the short list of ongoing operations at the Tappan Zee Bridge site:

  • Dredging operations will continue 24/7
  • Test pile program
  • Rockland bulkhead construction and Dock Extension at Rockland under existing bridge
  • Temporary Rockland trestle construction including pile driving on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Temporary Westchester trestle construction including pile driving on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Survey inspections on existing bridge
  • Mobilization at the exit 10 staging area
  • Support for river-based work from the Rockland shoreline
