And The Beat, er Work, Goes On

Utility work on River Road in South Nyack continues through November, and “will involve reducing the roadway to one lane during daytime hours,” per an update from the New NY Bridge. Temporary coverings during non-construction times will cause uneven surfaces for drivers and bicyclists; caution and slower speeds are advised.

You already know construction of the Rockland trestle includes daytime pile driving, and is restricted to weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, from 12 noon to 7 p.m., and is not allowed at night or on Sundays.

And if the noise is too loud, per the perimeter real-time noise, vibration and air quality monitors, or is outside those allowed times, call the hotline at 1-855-TZBRIDGE (1-855-892-7434), or email

The U.S. Coast Guard’s Local Notice to Mariners, issued September 11 — excerpted and in its entirety each week under Boater Safety Information on the New NY Bridge website — warned, “Numerous units of floating construction equipment will be operating in waterway north of the existing Tappan Zee Bridge.”

Activity in the river means BE EXTRA CAREFUL. You know that, too. These last few weeks of warm weather and boating will be shared with increasingly more construction equipment.

I’d like to know what you think.
