One of two 1,000-foot platforms — present during the five-year project — that will support a crane for construction of both the westernmost and easternmost parts of the new bridge is pictured above.

Most people know about the strict construction timetable, and that the new bridge is slated for completion in 2018. Here’s where it will meet the NYS Thruway in both counties, once completed.

Select property owners in both counties have until July 11 to decide if they’d like new noise barriers — on-land walls would be concrete material; on-bridge walls could be clear or solid material. A reply from at least 50 percent (half) of those who received ballots is required, and more than 50 percent of those must want the barrier for that process to continue.

Several months earlier, Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC installed perimeter real-time noise, vibration and air quality monitors near Rockland and Westchester counties’ shorelines as part of the project’s Environmental Performance Commitments (EPC).

I’d like to know what you think.
