Impact Pile Driving, Rockland Trestle Construction Begin

Tappan Zee Constructors, LLC (TZC) begins impact pile driving whereby, for the next two to three months, 15 test piles will verify subsurface conditions in the river and pilings’ structural capacity.

Per the Final Environmental Impact Statement, the program is restricted to weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, from 12 noon to 7 p.m., and is not allowed at night or on Sundays.

Several months earlier, TZC 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).

Additionally, TZC will reconstruct a maintenance dock damaged during Hurricane Sandy, and continues building the Rockland bulkhead that will be part of the Thruway’s permanent dock, and will be the access point for the Rockland trestle.

I’d like to know what you think.
