The New NY Bridge is making progress towards replacing the 60-year old Tappan Zee across the Hudson River. Among other things, the heavy traffic, narrow lanes and lack of emergency shoulders has contributed to the bridge experiencing twice the average accident rate per mile as the rest of the NY Thruway system. The $4 billion project is expected to open in 2018.
The project has one of the most extensive websites we've ever seen, complete with its own webcams, newsletter and magazine! Even the entire design-build construction contract is available. Check it out at http://www.newnybridge.com/.
