Tappan Zee Bridge News


Girder/Roadway Deck Placement Will Temporarily Impact River Road/Piermont Avenue
Tappan Zee Constructors (TZC) is preparing to install steel girders and concrete deck panels for the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge over River Road in Grand View. The materials will connect the eastbound span of the new bridge to the on-land Rockland abutment. The process will take several weeks to complete and will result in minor traffic delays on Piermont Avenue in South Nyack and River Road in Grand View.
From now through Friday, May 18, expect single-lane alternating traffic and 20-minute traffic stops. During this period, motorists should expect traffic to be reduced to a single lane controlled by flag persons between 7a and 5:30p, Monday through Friday. Between 9a and 2:30p, motorists can expect periodic, 20-minute traffic stops, as steel girders are lifted into position over the roadway.
Overnight Lane Closures in Tarrytown

Following the installation of precast concrete slabs near the bridge’s Westchester landing, TZC is scheduled to proceed with grouting work in the area. The work creates a new base roadway for the twin-span crossing’s connection to the New York State Thruway (I-87/I-287) and requires overnight lane closures on the northbound Thruway.

At least one lane will remain open at all times. Specific lane closure times are listed in the chart below.
